In addition to another little judicial decision you might have heard about today, June 28 also saw a significant decision in the Megaupload case — a New Zealand court held that the searches of "Kim Dotcom's" home, and the seizure of materials there, violated New Zealand law.
Tipster Myk kindly sent me the decision, which is here.
The best summary is at the end, in the findings and remedies section. The bottom line is that the New Zealand judge will issue a declaration that the searches and seizures there were illegal. Next week, time permitting, I'll comment on how that might impact the criminal case in the U.S., and what role if any it will play in Kim Dotcom's efforts to avoid extradition.
