Gizmodo's Jason Chen Has His Home Raided By Police

Gizmodo's Jason Chen Has His Home Raided By Police: "

The next chapter of the drama surrounding Apple's 4G iPhone unfolded last night, when California's Rapid Enforcement Allied Computer Team raided the home of Jason Chen, Gizmodo's editor-in-chief.

According to a posting on Gizmodo earlier today, Chen and his wife returned home after an evening out to discover that a large number of police officers and detectives had decended on their home. It was explained to Chen that a search warrant had been issued for his home and any vehicles that may have been parked on the property.

Before leaving Chen's property, law enforcement officals removed a total of four computers and two servers, taking them into police custody as evidence. In a release posted on Gizmodo, Chen states that the police working the warrant issued him and his wife with a catalogue of all of their possessions taken into custody, and suggested he file a reimbursment claim with the police department for damages done to his home when the police entered the premises.

For those unfamiliar with the events leading up to last night's raid on Chen's home, Gizmodo has posted a comprehensive list. If you're an Apple enthusiast, or have even a passing interest in media law, it's worth a read.
