Should Gizmodo sue the police over iPhone 4G?

Following on from the news this week that police raided the home of Gizmodo editor Jason Chen and left with some of his computer equipment, we have now learned that Gizmodo are planning to sue the police over this matter.

As reported from Apple Insider, Chen has now hired a lawyer who has stated that the police did not have to break into his house with a warrant and could of avoided this by simply talking with Gizmodo first.

His lawyer, Thomas Burke now thinks that they have a case against the police, as he had this to say on the matter: “If a request had been made, we would have freely and quickly given assurances under penalty of perjury that no information is destroyed.”

The investigation is still ongoing as to the events leading up to the iPhone 4G prototype actually being obtained, or if it was indeed deemed ‘stolen’, as Apple claim.
