    What I missed was that the Infolaw link above mentions that there had been a hearing scheduled in the NY ED crt, suggesting that Dynadot would've been represented.  I totally missed that the injunction was issued by a California crt in an ex parte hearing.  

    The more I think about this, the more I think there's some procedural background we're missing.  From other links, it looks like wikileaks had been previously enjoined, so this injunction could just be an extension of modification of a previously issued injunction (which would quell the due process concerns, since they'd already had a chance to weigh in on the merits.)

      the due process issue just jumped out at me -- however, even if there had been other hearings, it would seem that a new request for injunctive relief would warrant an immediate hearing.  Requests for IR can be ex parte -- but rulings never are given without a hearing.  I find this astonishing.

      I really appreciate it when folks give links to actual cases.  Thanks again.
