Kim Dotcom to appeal against verdict that New Zealand raid was legal

The Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom, who is fighting extradition from New Zealand to the US on internet piracy charges, has said he will appeal against a court ruling that a raid on his mansion was legal.The New Zealand court of appeal has thrown out a 2012 decision of the high court that the warrants used were invalid because they were not specific enough and did not properly describe his offences. The warrants preceded Dotcom’s arrest and were used to seize 135 electronic items including laptops, computers, hard drives, flash sticks and servers in January 2012.
