ICANN TaskForce vs. the ICANN Staff

What happens when an ICANN Task Force requests legal guidance from ICANN staff? If you guessed "The Staff ignores the request just like they ignore the At-Large" then you would be 100% correct. The WHOIS 1/2 Task Force has been waiting for months for an "appointment" with the ICANN legal beagles to discuss conflicts between applicable law and the Registrar Accreditation Agreement. They finally decided that they weren't going to put up with the bullshit any longer and forwarded an appeal to the ICANN Ombudsman.

Task Force Co-Chair Jordyn Buchanan writes: "I actually just had a conversation with the Ombudsman earlier this evening--I hadn't originally realized that there was a special form to fill out, but I've done that now and have already received some follow up questions. It seems that the Ombudsman will be quite responsive to the complaint that we have filed."
