Gizmodo might file case against the police for iPhone raid

A legal officer of the blogging company, Gizmodo said that it is considering filing a case against the sheriff's office in San Mateo County, California for conducting a raid in one of its editor's office to search for iPhone photos, devices and other components on Friday evening.

The raid was part of the probe by police into the lost-found-returned iPhone prototype. The police raided Jason Chen's home and seized his computers and related equipment. Chen cannot face charges because he is protected by the journalism laws.
