Judge Shuts Down Wikileaks, Then Reconsiders
David Ardia at Citizen Media Law Project gives the rundown on the fast-paced turn of events that resulted Friday in a federal judge issuing a permanent injunction shutting down Wikileaks.org -- a site for anonymous leaking of government and corporate documents -- and then amending the order soon after to allow it to resume operations, but without the documents sought to be blocked by the plaintiff, Cayman Islands banking entity Julius Baer Bank and Trust Company. The turn of events must have come about, writes Ardia, after the judge "finally read the United States Constitution." As for Wikileaks, the site remains down as of this writing.
