Dotcom To Seek A Review Of Court's Forfeiture Ruling

Kim Dotcom's run of bad luck continues as the courts ruled against him once again. Dotcom was hoping to get his assets unfrozen but a three judge panel ruled that since his is still a fugitive, they can't release the money he had stashed in Honk Kong.

German tech entrepreneur and alleged internet pirate Kim Dotcom will seek a review of a Federal Court decision which rejected his bid to keep hold of millions of dollars in assets held in Hong Kong and New Zealand, his lawyer said. A three-judge panel of the 4th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals ruled two to one on Friday that Dotcom could not recover his assets because by remaining outside the U.S., he was a fugitive, which disentitled him from using the resources to fight his case.
