Conrad Black loses appeal

Bad news. Conrad Black's convictions were upheld by the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals. His attorney, Andrew Frey:

[said further] steps could include petitioning the judicial panel for another hearing or taking Lord Black's case to the U.S. Supreme Court.

... criticized the ruling for containing a number of factual errors. In arguing that Lord Black did not receive a fair trial, he declared the case the weakest he had seen in his 45-year legal career.

Here's the entire Seventh Court ruling.

This is not justice!

Who expected justice in this case? If there had been any justice, this would never have come to trial. I hope Black appeals and wins. If he chooses not to appeal, I trust he will be allowed to serve his sentence in Canada. On the other hand, I hope Rattenger (sp?) the Ratfink is not allowed to serve his sentence in Canada.

It's a legal system, not a justice system.

Scary thought that the Courts/media/politicians can do this to a guy they don't like - makes one wonder what they could do to YOU!
