Gizmodo has posted the warrant that was used to confiscate four personal computers and two servers from Jason Chen’s house. This was in response to the whole iPhone 4th Gen leak debacle.

Gizmodo is now claiming that the search warrant is invalid, here is what they had to say:

According to Gaby Darbyshire, COO of Gawker Media LLC, the search warrant to remove these computers was invalid under section 1524(g) of the California Penal Code.

Frankly, I don’t feel the least bit of sorrow for the folks over at Gizmodo and Gawker Media. If you play with fire, you’re going to get burned. They have spent the last couple of weeks doing very unsavory things that may have crossed the line into illegal. In any case, they’re getting a taste of their own medicine. The poor Apple Engineer that lost the phone has it much worse than the Gizmodo team does, and he only made an honest mistake.
