The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and the American Civil Liberties Union represent Birgitta Jonsdottir a member of the Icelandic Parliament in response to the efforts by the U.S.
In February 2008, Swiss bank Julius Baer filed suit in federal district court against Wikileaks for hosting 14 allegedly leaked documents regarding personal banking transactions of Julius Baer customers. The court subsequently issued a permanent injunction disabling the wikileaks.org domain name and preventing that domain name from being transferred to any other registrar. EFF, the ACLU and the ACLU of Northern California moved to intervene in the lawsuit, joining other amici, arguing that the unwarranted injunction violated the First Amendment as an unlawful prior restraint. The court agreed with our arguments, dissolving the injunction and allowing the wikileaks.org domain name to go back up. Julius Baer subsequently moved to dismiss it case.
