A Canadian court granted Huawei Technologies Co. Chief Financial Officer Meng Wanzhou’s request to delay her extradition hearing until August so her legal team can examine potential new evidence.

British Columbia Supreme Court Associate Chief Justice Heather Holmes ruled Wednesday that the final three weeks of arguments will now begin on or around Aug. 3. The proceeding was previously scheduled to start next week and wrap up in mid-May. Written reasons for her decision are expected shortly.
