Case against Net Nanny postponed by court

As reported earlier on Danwei, a Shanghainese man who blogs under the name Yeetai has sued his Internet connection provider China Telecom. His complaint is that his U.S. hosted website was blocked, and China Telecom will not or cannot explain to him why.

The case was supposed to go to court on Tuesday May 29. But at 2pm on May 28, the responsible judge called Yeetai and told him the trial would be delayed. Contacted by Danwei, Yeetai said he believes that the case will be heard within a month, but he did not get a confirmed date from the judge.

Yeetai's blog is here, with an English explanation of what he is doing here.
