Dear Alejandro

US courts are not a subject of ICANN, it is the other way around.... So
courts are not going to observe the intricate niceties of ICANN's
internal lingo..... gTLDs are directly controlled by ICANN, it can
include and remove one from the operative list of gTLDs.... There is no
other way to remove a gTLD... That alone counts, and the court will
direct ICANN accordingly.... Just forget the ICANN jargon. Please
respond to substantive points and issues.

You havent responded to my substantive points, and are taking the cover
of a jargon about which I care as little as a US court will.. The
substantive point it; is to proceed from an existing case, rojadirecta
had taken a gTLD, it were .rojadirecta (or for wikipedia's case
.wikipedia), and the same case had come to the same US court, where
would its order to take down the web presence of the respective
businesses be directed?  Would you care to respond to this point? Thanks.
