Jury Will Begin Deliberations in Black Trial
At long last, the criminal trial against Conrad Black and other executives of Hollinger International is wrapping up, as the attorney for defendant Mark S. Kipnis, the former general counsel for Hollinger, made his closing argument. Kipnis is accused of assisting the other defendants in receiving noncompete payments that should have gone to the company and receiving a $150,000 bonus for his efforts.
