Gizmodo Lawyer Considers Suit Over iPhone Warrant

A lawyer for Gizmodo says the gadget blog could sue the sheriff's office in San Mateo County, Calif., for raiding an editor's home as part of a criminal probe into an errant iPhone prototype. The option of a lawsuit "is available because search is not the appropriate method in this situation," said Thomas R. Burke, a media lawyer and partner in the San Francisco offices of Davis Wright Tremaine.
