If you can convince VeriSign GRS, you might can use Appendix K, Section B
of the Revised VeriSign .com Registry Agreement (16 April 2001) to get
VeriSign to shutdown the domain and reserve it from being used.

See http://www.icann.org/tlds/agreements/verisign/registry-agmt-appk-com-16apr01.htm
for the text from Appendix K.

It's worth a try, at least. :)

Good luck!
