Judge Reverses Order, Allows Wikileaks To Live Again
from the well-that-was-productive dept
A couple weeks after trying to shut down Wikileaks a federal judge in California, after hearing the various first amendment concerns realized that perhaps he was a bit hasty. He has now reversed the order, allowing the site to have its domain name back. So, after all of this, the site still remains up and millions more people now know that the Swiss bank Julius Baer tried to shut it down to hide various documents. The end result: not only is the disputed content still available, many more people have seen it. I assume that this was not quite how the bank’s lawyers expected this situation to turn out.
