Removal of a Blogspot Blog

The Blogger blog has been removed by Google due to a legal request a couple of days ago. On their new homepage, the writers of the blog say:

[W]e’ve been evicted from our old home at blogger without notice

They claim they got the following alert from the Blogger Team (after the removal?):

We’d like to inform you that we’ve received a court order regarding your blog In accordance with the court order, we’ve been forced to remove your blog.

Google in the meantime states:

We received a court order to take down a blog and have complied, as we do with all valid legal processes. The author of the blog has been notified and can challenge the court order through established legal processes.

Some additional background: The order is valid whilst legal proceedings in relation to the children mentioned on the blog are ongoing. Once the case is over, the order will/should be lifted and the blog can be reinstated.

[Thanks Joshua!]
