[efoods]Computer hacker Gary McKinnon is mounting a fresh High Court challenge to stop his extradition to the US.
Solicitor Karen Todner said papers were lodged with the High Court seeking a judicial review of the home secretary’s decision not to block his transfer.
The home secretary has 14 days to respond before a judge considers it.
Mr McKinnon, 43, who has Asperger’s syndrome, is accused of breaking into the US military computer system. He says he was seeking evidence of UFOs.
