    There is something ghastly to hide.

    If Karl gets to see the books, he'll know what it is. ICANN, or more accurately the staff, doesn't want that.

    Karl had a chance to follow procedures and refused to do that. His only goal is to breach his duty of loyalty to the corporation and make public information that he would not otherwise be able to release. Go ICANN.

    I find it absolutely extraordinary and quite distasteful that ICANN's lawyers should attempt to use the fact that one of it's directors voted with his conscience and free will on Board resolutions in Ghana as a way to "expose" Auerbach. This is tantamount to saying that if oyu do not toe the line you cannot be on the board. It is unbelievable. I quote from ICANN's response -

    "Throughout the meeting,
    the Board members worked hard to reach consensus positions, and ultimately versions of all ten
    resolutions were passed. In the end, no director other than Auerbach voted against any of the ten
    consensus resolutions; he cast opposing votes to five of them. Auerbach abstained on two of the
    other five."

    How on earth can this be relevant to the petition at hand? I sincerely hope that the Californian courts look beyond the rhetoric and expose how corrupt and pathetic the efforts of ICANN's staff to control proceedings are.

    Jones Day are paid more in legal fees to sevice an organisation with a staff of 14 in a quarter than the whole of the ITU spends on legal fees in a year.
