Conrad Black Granted Bail

The Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals has granted bail to Conrad Black. Like Skilling, the Supreme Court vacated and remanded Black's case back to the Seventh Circuit in light of its holding that honest services applies only to schemes premised on bribery or kickbacks.  The grant of bail is "pending the disposition of his appeal" in the appellate court.  The Seventh Circuit did, however, remand the case to the trial court "for the limited purpose of permitting the district court to determine the conditions of release."
