The five judges of the Supreme Court have upheld an appeal by Ian Bailey against a High Court ruling that he surrender to authorities in France.
The full judgment will be released later today. An order was also made discharging Mr Bailey from bail.
Mr Bailey has been fighting his extradition to France in connection with the murder of film-maker Sophie Toscan du Plantier in 1996 for almost two years.
Ms Toscan du Plantier (39) was found beaten to death outside her holiday home in Schull, west Cork, two days before Christmas 1996.
Mr Bailey has always protested his innocence. He was arrested twice but never charged by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP).
Lawyers for the Manchester-born former journalist, who still lives in Schull, have always maintained there are no grounds to extradite him.
Mr Bailey took his appeal to the Supreme Court last month, where it emerged no decision had been made to charge Mr Bailey in France.
