Abstract: 

On October 28, 2019, the Court of Appeal for British Columbia granted judicial review of a May 18, 2018 order to surrender, authorizing extradition of a Canadian national to the United States to face prosecution for money laundering offenses.   In Sheck v. Canada,[1] the Court returned the case to the Minister of Justice for reconsideration.  Sheck had previously been unsuccessful in obtaining a stay of extradition.
