Following up on my February 24 blog entry, my closer reading shows that the permanent injunction issued for the Wikileaks case plaintiffs was by consent of one of the defendants, but not by Wikileaks. Also, my closer reading shows that the February 15 permanent injunction led to the disconnection of Wikileaks’s domain name, rather than a disconnection of the sitehost used by Wikileaks. Thanks to Windypundit for reviewing this issue and for alerting me to the latter matter.

Wisely, on February 29, the trial judge reversed the above-described permanent injunction. Wikileaks.org is back at present. The next court hearing in this case is May 16, 2008. The order reversing the permanent injunction is here. The docket entries through March 2, 2008, are here.

Thanks to Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press for listing an update on this case. 

Jon Katz.
