Former FIFA official Jack Warner has succeeded in having extradition committal proceedings against him put on hold until November.
Warner is among a host of former officials to have been accused in the widespread FIFA corruption scandal, but has successfully resisted attempts so far to extradite him to face trial in the United States.
His latest attempt came in the form of a judicial review claim against extradition to the US, but the Trinidadian saw this avenue thrown out by a judge.
Warner appealed against this decision, which appeared to have opened the opportunity for the 75-year-old to be taken to the US.
According to Trinidad and Tobago Newsday, the judge did admit that there were inconsistencies with the Extradition Treaty and Extradition Act, with the treaty not part of domestic law.
The appeal is now set to be heard in November, with a judge postponing extradition proceedings against the official until a decision on that case is reached.
Warner is wanted in the US on charges of wire fraud, racketeering and money laundering.
He was banned for life from taking part in football-related activity by FIFA in 2015, after their Ethics Committee found him to have been a "key player" in illegal money-making schemes.
Warner had been a former vice-president at football's world governing body as well as an Executive Committee member.
He was also the long-serving President of the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football.
Warner has always denied wrongdoing.
In December, former FIFA vice president Juan Angel Napout and ex-Brazilian Football Federation head Jose Maria Marin were convicted of racketeering and wire fraud conspiracies in New York.
Napout was convicted on three counts of wire fraud conspiracy and Marin was found guilty on a total of six counts.
Former Peruvian Football Federation President Manuel Burga was acquitted of all charges.
Of the 42 individual defendants, 24 have cut deals with prosecutors, hoping for lighter sentences in exchange for cooperation.
Last October, Guatemalan official Héctor Trujillo was sentenced to eight months in prison.
Some defendants remain in their home countries, either charged or being tried for similar crimes, or fighting extradition to the US - such as Warner.
