I Was Right, Dagnabit!

The judge in the Spamhaus case has issued an order denying the plaintiff an injunction against ICANN ordering it to cut off Spamhaus’s domain name. Because ICANN wasn’t a party to the litigation, he cited Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 65(d) and denied the injunction.

Which was exactly what I predicted in a blog post yesterday, one eaten by a crashing browser about ten words from completion. Spamhaus has not exactly been litigating intelligently, but the world is not end-coming. It’s nice to see the normal protections of due process protecting normally.
