A California court has ordered a Web site to stop anonymously posting government and corporate documents. Wikileaks.org, operated by Dynadot, was taken offline in the U.S. Feb. 15. Access to Wikileaks pages hosted by other countries was still available. A Swiss banking group, Julius Baer, took legal action after “several hundred” documents about its offshore activities were posted. Journalists, dissidents and others from around the world founded the site in 2006; it claims to have posted over 1.2 million documents.
