A Swiss court has cleared the way for documents taken into custody during a search of Jan Ullrich's house last fall and other evidence to be sent to Germany. The German cyclist had tried to prevent the transfer.
Ullrich's attorneys have until May 26 to appeal the decision, and it is assumed that they will do so, according to the dpa press agency.
The Kantonsgericht approved the transfer because the German investigation is for fraud. The materials under question include a DNA sample.
