If you've followed my #Assange coverage over the last few months I won't be at the hearing today so follow @aleximostrous & @estheraddley

On my way to #Assange judgment. Judge Riddle expected to order extradition, lawyers say, but either side will appeal if they lose #Wikileaks

My piece on #assange today. Note new @guardian style to eliminate times/days! 'Is set to' means this morning! http://gu.com/p/2nb5b/tf

@estheraddley looking forward to it. Assuming we can't possibly extradite him but you never know. What time is decision due?
esther addley @estheraddley
@JoJo_Wood I expect a relatively short hearing, but who knows. Legal opinion suggests judge will rule for extradition but again, who knows!
esther addley @estheraddley
Some confusion whether #assange judgement starts 10 or 10.30, court officials themselves unclear. I expect the latter, will confirm
esther addley @estheraddley
Small but dedicated band of #assange supporters hv been at each hearing. Partic impressive as Belmarsh not easy to get to
esther addley @estheraddley
Jemima goldsmith arriving at court. No sign of #assange yet
esther addley @estheraddley
Told Judge Riddle has 2nd hearing (w/ shrien dewani, SA murder case) at 11, cd mean #assange judgement v quick
esther addley @estheraddley
#Assange arriving with his lawyer jennifer robinson. Small snapper scramble for pics, always entertaining
esther addley @estheraddley
It's 10.30 start at #assange. Tho guards and even prosecution team thought 10am!
esther addley @estheraddley
If #Assange loses there will be a question over his bail. Possible (likely?) Crown will argue he shd be remanded again
Alexi Mostrous @AlexiMostrous
#Assange is expected to arrive soon. Bail cld be an issue if he loses - Crown might argue J is flight risk and shld be jailed pending appeal

BTOpenzone is being very elusive today, so if I disappear you know who to blame...
Federica Cocco @federicacocco
I'm in the media annex along with 30/40 journalists and one has been kind enough to share his mifi connection with me! #grateful
