Last month a New Zealand court ruled that the US acted outside of the law with an invalid warrant when searching Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom's home, and now we're starting to see the fallout — the extradition hearing has been put off until next year. According to the AP, the hearing has been moved from next month to March 2013 because of the ongoing dispute over evidence legality. Dotcom himself expressed frustration over the postponement, accusing the US of "dirty delays," and his lawyer told Wired that the controversial figure is looking forward to his day in court. For now, though, he'll have to wait things out at his extravagant New Zealand mansion.
