Lauri Love has won his legal battle

In written argument he said the district judge's conclusion on extradition was "reasonably open to her on the findings of fact she made".

Lauri Love, 32, was arrested in October 2013 on suspicion of stealing data from multiple U.S. agencies in a series of attacks in 2012 and 2013.

Love was arrested and bailed in the United Kingdom, with the ultimate goal of deciding, "Should he be extradited to the U.S. to stand trial?".

They appealed against a 2016 British court ruling in favour of extradition, subsequently signed off by interior minister Amber Rudd. "We consider that they would, both on the evidence before the judge, and on the further evidence we have received".

Love is living with Asperger's syndrome and depression.

Lauri Love reacts as he leaves after attending his extradition hearing at Westminster Magistrates' Court in London.

Having identified a high risk of suicide, she [the district judge] "properly assessed whether and how that risk could be managed were the appellant to be extradited". If he's dead, putting it bluntly, no victims are going to get anything from a trial.

"As we demonstrated at appeal, Lauri was only ever in this position because he had been marked out for unfair, discriminatory and vindictive treatment". I genuinely believe he means it.


Love's father, Reverend Alexander Love, was in tears as the verdict was read.

Love has been supported by the Courage Foundation, which also supported Chelsea Manning, the former US Army soldier recently released from prison after being convicted in 2013 of leaking 750,000 classified or highly secret documents.

Supporters argued that the systems infiltrated in #OpLastResort had publicly known vulnerabilities and that rather than doing "real harm", the bulk of costs were incurred by bringing protections up "up to the standard of security that they should have been in the first place".

Alleged computer hacker Lauri Love has won his high court appeal against his extradition to the US. Inside, the justices expressed their disapproval after members in the audience clapped and cheered in response to their ruling. "To be born on these islands is to win the lottery of life".

During the cyber attack, investigators said Love would chat online with his co-conspirators.

Love himself thanked his legal team and Barry Sheerman MP, who, as well as campaigning for greater recognition of autism-related matters in Parliament, has also been supporting the campaign to have Love tried in Blighty.

"This decision obviously affects my life but the reason I've gone through this ordeal is not just to save myself from being kidnapped and locked up for 99 years in a country I've never visited, but it's to set a precedent", Love told reporters outside the court after the decision was handed down.

An alleged British hacker has won an appeal to avoid extradition to the United States, a decision that a freedom of information group dubbed "a massive victory" for freedom of expression.
