“I’d like to go back. Toronto’s nice this time of year,” says Black

U.S. federal judge to review case

Today, Conrad Black will know whether or not he is free to return to Canada, after a bail hearing in Chicago before federal judge Amy St. Eve. St. Eve has ordered Black to remain in the U.S. until she reviews his case. Black is currently free on a $2 million U.S. bond posted by his friend. He was freed on bail on Wednesday following a Supreme Court decision that found his fraud charges unconstitutional. (He was sentenced six and a half years in prison for defrauding investors and obstructing justice.) “I’m enjoying my new surroundings,” Black said, adding his preference is to return to Toronto, reported the Globe and Mail. “I’d like to go back. Toronto’s nice this time of year.”
