New Zealand court finds raid on Kim Dotcom legal

WELLINGTON -- A New Zealand appeals court ruled Wednesday that police acted legally when armed officers raided Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom's Auckland mansion as part of a US-led online piracy probe.

The decision overturned an earlier finding that the January 2012 dawn raid was unlawful because the search warrants police used were too broad to be considered reasonable.

An appeals bench of three judges found the warrants were “defective in some respects” but not enough to render them invalid.
