Associated Press

BETTER TO EXTRADITE: U.S. prosecutors got a New Zealand court win in their battle to extradite Megaupload founder Kim Dotcom and three colleagues accused of facilitating massive copyright fraud through the now-defunct online file-sharing site.

THE RULING: An appeals court overturned an earlier ruling that would have allowed Dotcom and the others broad access to evidence in the case against them at the time of their extradition hearing, which is scheduled for August.

APPEAL: Dotcom's lawyer plans to appeal the ruling to New Zealand's Supreme Court.
