A US judge has denied a request to order internet registrars to suspend Spamhaus's domain, easing concerns that the spam blocking service might be interrupted.
Judge Charles Kocoras turned down a motion from e360 Insight, a firm that sued Spamhaus after the anti-spam organisation blacklisted its domains over alleged spamming, in the latest chapter in an ongoing legal tussle between the two organisations.

The most important part for me of e360's request was the second injunction -
In its moving papers, e360 requested three forms of relief for the claimed noncompliance: first, suspension of Spamhaus’s domain name until it complies with the terms of the injunction; second, steps to prevent third parties from accessing Spamhaus’s technology or permission to add them as defendants to this suit if they continue to do so; and third, a monetary sanction against Spamhaus for each day that it fails to comply with the injunction. When e360 appeared in court to present the motion, we noted the breadth of the requested relief and directed e360 to submit a draft order that was more tailored.
