District Judge Jeffery White Remembers the United States Has a Constitution
The United States Federal Judge who attempted to shut down a website for whistle blowers has come to his senses. He has now reversed his decision, lifting the injunction that attempted to shut down Wikileaks.org. District Judge Jeffery White, during a hearing in his San Francisco courtroom, stated that he had "serious questions" about whether the legal measures sought by the bank "would be constitutionally approriate" and whether they constituted prior restraint by the government. He also cited "possible violations of the First Amendment." Glad he eventually got it right. Maybe next time he'll remember the United States has a Constitution and think about what it says before he signs an order. The site's current home is here.
