Gizmodo Blogger Raided

You may have followed the saga of the Apple engineer who “lost” a prototype of the next generation iPhone in a bar? A prototype that just happened to end up with technology blog Gizmodo? Of course, there was skepticism about how accidental that might have been, largely dispelled by Gizmodo. Now, despite the fact that Gizmodo has already returned Apple’s lost prototype, the Gizmodo blogger responsible was raided by police using what appears to have been an invalid search warrant.

UPDATE: A couple of nice posts from the Volokh conspirators provide legal background.
