Reports reveal the federal charges against Wikileaks founder Julian Assange will remain sealed for the time being.
On Tuesday a federal judge Leonie Brinkema said she will later rule on whether or not the public has a right to see the documents.
The judge said the government made a mistake in exposing Assange’s name in the documents.
The move comes after a recently revealed court filing shows U.S. prosecutors had filed sealed and unknown charges against Assange.
She also noted no other case in which the government was compelled to unseal the charging document before the defendant’s arrest.
