Lord Black appeals
Conrad Black and his co-defendants have appealed to the United States Supreme Court.
First, they must convince the court to hear the case, so they have filed a petition for the writ of certiori. Their lawyer is the very capable and able Miguel Estrada who had been nominated to the DC Circuit by Bush but was blocked by the Democrats before he withdrew his name. (h/t Bashman)
The brief is immaculately written, so there is nothing more than can be done other than waiting.

George W should pardon Conrad Black. His charges and trial were a sad joke on the US justice system, a show trial for a non crime.

George Bush obviously had a hate on for Lord Black. As he did for Compeon and Ramos. The same witch hunter prosecutor put Martha Stewart in jail.
