+ - Dotcom Search Warrants ruled illegal->

Submitted by StueyNZ
StueyNZ (2657297) writes "Justice Helen Winkelmann of New Zealand's High Court (non-appellate court) has ruled that the search warrants used to search and seize property from Kim Dotcom's Coatsville residence did not properly describe the offenses under which the search was being made.

In particular, warrants did not make it clear that the breach of copyright law and money laundering offenses were US Federal Offenses rather than NZ offenses.

Therefore the search and seizure was illegal.

I hope this means Mr Dotcom gets his security footage back, which should shed some light on how many tourists from the FBI were present at the NZ Police raid, and how many firearms those tourists were waving around as they joined in."

To err is human -- to blame it on a computer is even more so.
