Wikileaks gets its domain name back

The Judge apparently took some time to defend his initial actions which caused the injunction to proceed in the first place.

After spending more than three hours hearing arguments from a raft of attorneys–two representing the Swiss bank that fought to get the site’s plug pulled and about 10 who have been trying to get the site back online–a federal judge here has ruled in favor of Wikileaks.
Wikileaks, which uses as its primary domain, is a whistle-blowing site that focuses on posting leaked documents.
“The court denies the motion for preliminary injunction, and the court hereby dissolves the injunction against (domain name registrar) Dynadot, and the litigation may now proceed,” said U.S. District Judge Jeffrey White, who had called a brief recess around 11:40 a.m. PST, indicating that he was inclined to revisit his order from earlier this month that effectively pulled the plug on the domain name.
