Update: Julian Assange was granted bail and released from jail this morning.

WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange arrived at a London court early this morning for his bail appeal hearing.

Assange was granted bail earlier this week, but the judge's decision is being appealed.

The controversial WikiLeaks leader is wanted in Sweden on sex charges.

On Tuesday a judge set a $315,000 for Assange.

Arriving at court today Assange's lawyers said to reporters that they believe they have the money for Assange's release.

An extradition hearing is scheduled for next month.

There's no word yet on whether the U.S. plans to file charges against Assange.
