Washington: The US Supreme Court today set
aside the corporate fraud conviction of Anglo-Canadian media
mogul Conrad Black and sent the case back to a lower court.
"We vacate the judgment of the Court of Appeals and
remand the case for further proceedings consistent with this
opinion," the Supreme Court ruled.
Black, 64, who once headed the world`s third-largest
media empire, was convicted in July 2007 of stealing millions
of dollars from the sales of newspapers being off-loaded by
Hollinger International.
