Dotcom said his legal team are confident the Supreme Court will hear the appeal given there are such significant legal issues at stake.

The group lost their case in the North Shore District Court in 2015 and has now lost appeals to the High Court and the Court of Appeal.

In its ruling on Thursday, the Court of Appeal argued that the U.S. case was warranted, as it relied on "available extradition pathways" propped up by "sufficient evidence".

The Court of Appeal has ruled Mr Dotcom, plus co-defendants, Mathias Ortmann, Bram van der Kolk and Finn Batato are eligible to be extradited for their participation in alleged criminal copyright infringement, racketeering and money laundering.

Mr Dotcom estimates he has spent 165 days in court and spent $40 million in legal fees on the case. Dotcom has vowed to fight the decision, saying "it has the value of toilet paper".

A Court of Appeal panel decided that Mr Dotcom could argue for further discovery from the government in relation to his case.
