If a domain expires, the person holding the domain has 30 days to request renewal. If after 30 days it is not renewed, it is then made available for anyone to purchase. If he waited longer then 30 days to renew and he lost it, Ron Paul won't have a case to be made. Those are the rules ICANN goes by.

A precedent: A case where a pro-union activist group owned Walmartsucks.com, Wal-Mart lost the law suite against the company for using Walmartsucks.com, they shut them down for using their trademark logo but Wal-Mart wound up paying close to $40 Million to obtain the domain name from the individual who registered it.

I buy and sell domain names quite a bit and am intimately familiar with the rules.
