Extradition of Exoo Refused

I have noted previously here the case of Reverend George Exoo, whose extradition was sought from the U.S.A. to Ireland for alleged assistance in a suicide.

It's now being reported that Exoo's extradition has been refused:

RTE: Extradition of Exoo halted in US

The Times West Virginian: Ex-Beckley minister free

Irish Times: Minister in suicide case calls for change in Irish law

The judgment was issued by the U.S. District Court, Southern District Court of West Virginia. The judge was Magistrate Judge R. Clarke VanDervort.
The court website is at http://www.wvsd.uscourts.gov/
Update May 2008:
The Exoo case Opinion is available here.
