MegaUpload case, which started more than 2 years ago, escalated to the Supreme Court of New Zealand. The argument over whether or not the raid on the site founder’s house back then was lawful seems to be heading to the highest court in the country. A few days ago, the Supreme Court allowed Kim Dotcom to appeal a three-months-old Court of Appeal decision that overturned an earlier High Court ruling that the raid was illegal.
After the police carried out a huge raid on Kim Dotcom’s premises back in January 2012, there were a lot of questions over the legality of the warrants the police used to start the operation. Later in 2012, a High Court judge decided that the warrants in question were not only overbroad, but also completely unlawful, providing a huge boost to Kim’s extradition battle prospects with the US.
Two years passed, and Kim Dotcom suffered a setback, as the Court of Appeal overturned the earlier High Court decision. Despite admitting that the warrants did contain some flaws, the judges also decided that overall the warrants were legitimate.
However, the case is not closed yet. The Supreme Court has now granted Kim Dotcom leave to appeal the Court of Appeal ruling handed down three months ago. This was announced by Dotcom on Twitter, and, of course, he is going to argue the validity of search warrants used in the raid. The new court hearing is scheduled for mid-June.
