As far as I know, there's no case law about address space assignments.
There's been a bunch of cases where someone stole address space by
pretending to be the original assignee, like the SF Bay Packet Radio
case in 2008, but as far as I know, the ones that have been resolved
were resolved without a court's help. There's also plenty of stolen
address space still in use by the party that stole it.
If there have been cases with a willing seller and a willing buyer
where ARIN has refused to update WHOIS or rDNS, I'd be interested to
hear about them.
