Gary McKinnon loses appeal

"Gary McKinnon has lost a judicial review against his extradition to the United States on hacking charges.

Lawyers for the Briton hoped his recent diagnosis with Asperger's Syndrome would be enough to persuade judges to overturn previous rulings and allow McKinnon to be tried in the UK." - The Register

Long story short Gary hacked some US gov systems with pathetic security, and for fear of going to gitmo is using the aspergers defense (which was diagnosed only after he lost his 1st appeal). We've been following Gary's Story for quite awhile now.
