The prosecution and the defense have taken the case to appellate courts, but it appears the Court of Appeal's decision has been delayed, as the decision was due today.

After a quick two-week trial for his part in hacking the Swedish IT company Logica, Svartholm was convicted of hacking, aggravated fraud and attempted aggravated fraud. He was sentenced to two years in prison.

In appeal, the court reassessed the evidence and allowed new testimony, as well.

The decision is now expected for next Wednesday.
