The French government's effort to stop a French company from hosting WikiLeaks has failed -- for now.
Two courts say they need more time to examine the issue.
Industry Minister Eric Besson has ordered a state agency to examine how to prevent WikiLeaks from being hosted in France. Web services company OVH has been hosting it since last week.
OVH sought a ruling by two courts about the legality of hosting WikiLeaks in France -- and the judges said this week they couldn't decide on the highly technical case right away.
WikiLeaks has been releasing publicly more than 250,000 often-embarrassing U.S. diplomatic memos.
