No further updates from what we wrote in the blog: The case is pending
review by the Landgericht, until then everything else is blocked. They
accepted our request for "sealing" and cannot legally continue the
analysis until the court decision.

Unfortunately we cannot publish any of the communication yet, because it
is illegal to cite from documents in ongoing legal cases, but basically
we (our lawyers) are arguing that this was clear overreach and
disproportionate action against 'witnesses'.

I doubt much will happen over the rest of the summer. Everyone seems to
be on vacation.
