ICANN/Verisign Settlement Agreement: “…the releases provided for in this Agreement shall not apply to the claims made by SnapNames, Inc. against ICANN in the Los Angeles Superior Court, Case No. BC 324782, or any other litigation that SnapNames might file related to the claims that SnapNames asserts in that lawsuit.”

What the hell is this doing in there? What does the Snapnames lawsuit have to do with the Verisign lawsuit?

I’m not a lawyer, nor do I have any legal training, but even I know that one of the first rules of putting agreements like this together is “don’t include details that have no bearing on either party”

So presuming legal competence on both sides, what’s the relationship to this deal that made it necessary to include this clause?
