The motion to unseal in the US has not had a date set yet for when it'll be heard. This action is being taken by the EFF ( on behalf of Indymedia. As soon as there is some news from this it will no doubt be posted. It is to find out who and why legal action was taken against Rackspace in the US.

The UK gov are denying any knowldge of the seizure of the hard disks - there have been several written answers in the House of Commons, search for indymedia on Hansard for more info on this.

The hard disks were cloned and the original have been sent to the EFF for analysis. Most the sites are back up but not all. The UK site is no longer running off a Rackspace server and it's not going to again.

The solidarity petition ( deadline has been extended -- sign it if you haven't already!

They appear to be getting a bit over confident.
