The “sub judice” rule was temporarily not in effect while the case was dismissed
until such time as the appeal was accepted. This created a window during which
we could disclose certain factual information.

The “sub judice” rule only applies while there is an active case that is actually
“sub judice” (which means “under the consideration of the court” basically).
When AFRINIC succeeded in getting the case dismissed, it stopped being
“sub judice” until such time as the judge ruled to reinstate the injunction pending
the appeal.
