You are absolutely, positively 100% correct.

It is also inaccurate to say the judge shutdown the Department
of Interior Internet.  The Department of Interior (contractors)
did it themselves just like @Home's executives and @Home
engineers terminated access to its network.

A judge issued an order.

Service was terminated.
