    Conrad Black has won release on bail while an appeal court reviews his conviction for fraud.

    It’s not clear when Lord Black might be released. His lawyer, Miguel Estrada, said Chicago judge Amy St. Eve, who presided over the criminal trial, will have to set the terms of the bail.

    Just in time to deal with the $70 million in tax arrears US revenue is looking for from him. He needs to get earning!

    A good day in the courts , Capt. Semrau not guilty , and Conrad Black freed on bail - as should have been the case earlier .

    IRS aside , Conrad and his counsel have taught the Americans a thing or two about their own damn laws , you cant make honest services and other legal points just vague enough to suit prosecuting officials .

    I m happy for Conrad and Capt. Semrau . Did it their way

    Conrad was crook from the time he stole exams at Upper Canada College.

    Cmon now , some college pranks . Conrad did not commit any crime in the matter before the US courts , this was politics and showmanship . Non compete and other such clauses are standard business practices.

    The USofA , with the help of some low level beaurcrats here , spun an awful tale on Black , Kipniss , and Radler et al . Public sentiment , politics , economy , Chicago DA jockying for a position turned complicated business into the supposed fraud of the decade ----

    Spend the effort on the Berrnie Madoffs and the Ed jones - they are the pilferers

    My mom was in Uni with her - same residence too. Apparently they're real and they're big.

    Conrad to be out momentarily. Conditions don't seem too stringent to me.
