Berlin state court spokesman Tobias Kaehne said Friday the court would "soon decide" on the request, but that information would be available "Monday at the earliest."
Kaehne said he could not elaborate on whether the statement meant there would be a decision later Friday, or if one was expected on the weekend.
Once the court decides, the German government will then have to sign off on the extradition of 29-year-old Luka Rocco Magnotta, but no problems are anticipated.
Magnotta's court-appointed attorney in Berlin has refused to comment.
