PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad -- A court is giving former FIFA vice president Jack Warner more time to fight being extradited from Trinidad and Tobago to the United States to face corruption charges.
A chief magistrate on Monday set a new hearing date of Aug. 28 after a government lawyer requested more time to examine the extradition request from the U.S. Justice Department.
