Conrad Black trial



One of the best white-collar-crime bloggers around, Tom Kirkendall, has a roundup of links on the Black trial, including to this Mark Steyn column. I'm staying out of this one: I have colleagues who know Black personally, my old law firm represents clients adverse to Black in civil litigation, and my law-school roommate is the lead prosecutor on the case. I will note, however, that if I were Conrad Black, I'd be awfully concerned about the number of potential jurors who assume someone is guilty just because they made a lot of money, especially given the prosecution's inclination to introduce prejudicial evidence of expenditures.

Separately, this Economist commentary piece not only mentions the Black trial, but Larry Ribstein's "Apple rule." (cross-posted at Overlawyered)
