Computer hacker, Lauri Love, must be aware of, and may even have been inspired by, the case of Asperger’s sufferer Gary McKinnon, who came within a whisker of deportation to the U.S. for hacking into its defence systems. The question now remains whether McKinnon will be deported to the U.S.
Edward Grange, Partner at Corker Binning, comments: “The signing of the extradition order was mere rubber stamping. Love has 14 days to lodge his application for permission to appeal. The High Court will grant this if the grounds are considered ‘reasonably arguable.'”
