Wikileaks published documents alleging that the Cayman Island branch of the Swiss Bank Julius Baer was involved in criminal activity. Julius Baer quickly took Wikileaks, their Registrar(Dynadot), and Assange to court in the United States. Dynadot folded quickly and was made to take down the domain “Wikileaks” but left up to the website with a URL that only had numbers. A coalition of journalists quickly formed and defended the site, the bank had to drop the suit.
