WikiLeaks' Assange loses sex case appeal
The British Supreme Court has denied Julian Assange's appeal against extradition to Sweden over sexual abuse allegations --but the judges have left open a surprise avenue for the WikiLeaks founder to fight on.
(CNN) LONDON - The court gave his lawyer two weeks to file an appeal arguing that the court had decided the case on the wrong grounds.
The lawyer, Dinah Rose, said she wanted the time to study the ruling and decide whether to appeal. It is very unusual for the court to grant permission to appeal its rulings, which are supposed to be final in Britain.
Assange has been fighting for a year and a half against being sent to Sweden for questioning on sexual abuse accusation.
