Kim Dotcom suing Kiwi gov. over admittedly illegal raid

Have to say, I'm still basically rooting against him:

It was bound to happen sooner or later: Kim Dotcom has finally sued the New Zealand government over its admittedly illegal spying against him and the subsequent raid on his house. (A New Zealand Court granted him the right to sue earlier this year.)

In court documents published for the first time this week by the New Zealand Herald, Dotcom lays out his case with many new details. In the unsealed filing, Dotcom and his fellow plaintiffs are seeking NZ$8.55 million ($6.9 million) in damages.

Last month, Dotcom alleged that the Five Eyes spy network—comprising signals intelligence spy agencies from New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom, Canada, and most notably, the United States—was used against him.

“As man advances in civilization, and small tribes are united into larger communities, the simplest reason would tell each individual that he ought to extend his social instincts and sympathies to all members of the same nation, though personally unknown to him. This point being once reached, there is only an artificial barrier to prevent his sympathies extending to the men of all nations and races.”
