[registrars] FYI - Legal Issue

Forwarded from a legal Listserv that I subscribe to.

Can anyone help?

I have been contacted by a client who registered a domain
name via a top level registration company and found out
that someone else had registered the very same domain
name a week or so later. The registration company replied
via email that an error had occurred with the websites
operating system but the domain name in question was
safe and no one else could take it, then they wrote back
saying the name was in fact taken by the new guy.
As a direct result my client was sacked from the website
project thus leaving him out of pocket.
Can my client take legal action against the registration
company to recover loss of earnings / damages?
Who can recommend me a brilliant attorney who would
take the case, on a no win no fee commission base situation.
