Dotcom was originally set to appear in court in August, but the extradition hearing was pushed back to March 2013 due to issues concerning the disclosure of evidence. The New Zealand High Court at the time ruled that the FBI had to provide Dotcom's lawyers with more of the evidence they had against him before he could stand trial for extradition.


One of Kim Dotcom's lawyers' spokeswoman confirmed the change, but wouldn't elaborate on why the delay was put into action.
