Conrad Black Loses Bid to Stall U.S. Request
"Conrad Black, the former newspaper publisher whose fraud trial is scheduled to start tomorrow, lost a bid to delay a hearing on U.S. prosecutors' request for evidence he took from his former holding company in Canada.
The Ontario Court of Appeal refused to grant Black a hearing on whether a judge's order to assemble the evidence should be put on hold during an appeal. Black's arguments were ``very weak'' and ``peripheral to the main issue,'' appeals court Judge James MacPherson wrote in a seven-page ruling released today in Toronto."
