I don't know if this court order is genuine:


ISC is ordered to operate the name servers only until March 8, 2012.
By the doctrine of expressio unius, this means that they have to stop
operating them after that date.  Presumably, the court can extend the
deadline, based on the feedback ISC provided in January.

The dates match up with the one in the (supposedly genuine) RIPE
