Media Baron Black's Conviction Set Aside

Thursday, 24 Jun 2010 11:30 AM

The Supreme Court set aside on Thursday a ruling that upheld the convictions of former media baron Conrad Black and two ex-colleagues for defrauding shareholders of one-time newspaper publishing giant Hollinger International Inc.

The justices sent the case back to a U.S. appeals court in Chicago for further proceedings.

The Canadian-born Black, who had been a member of Britain's House of Lords, has been in a U.S. prison since March 2008, when he began serving a 6-1/2-year sentence for fraud and obstruction of justice.
