It was the trial that captivated observers on both sides of the Atlantic. Media titan Conrad Black, by turns respected and reviled for decades in Canada and around the world, faced off with U.S. prosecutors on charges of criminal fraud stemming from his activities with Hollinger International. As the only Canadian writer to attend the trials of Conrad Black, lawyer Steven Skurka delivers a thorough, in-depth account of the controversial businessman's legal difficulties. Skurka offers analysis, insights, and personal anecdotes to present the clearest picture of the trials to date, featuring interviews with key members of the prosecution and defence, as well as a peek into the jury room during final deliberations. In the first edition of Tilted, Skurka showed how the prosecution attempted to "tilt" the trial in its favour, but he also demonstrated how Black unsuccessfully attempted to tilt the trial his way. Black lost his appeal to the Court of Appeals and began serving a six-and-a-half-year prison sentence in Florida. Black's legal battles moved to the U.S. Supreme Court, followed by a second appeal in Chicago and leading eventually to a dramatic conclusion. Now Skurka brings the reader up to date on all of the recent developments in Conrad Black's case, including new interviews and behind the scenes strategy.

About the Author

Steven Skurka is the legal analyst for CTV. A practising defence attorney, he has defended such landmark cases as the Hells Angels anti-gang law case and the Maple Leaf Gardens sex abuse scandal. He is a widely regarded lawyer and frequently quoted legal analyst who attended the Conrad Black trial in Chicago. His legal blog, "The Crime Sheet," has been widely followed. He lives in Toronto.


What makes Tilted more than just a chronicle of a criminal case round and round the appeal-go-round, as Skurka calls it, are the wonderfully human details that make trials and their aftermath the compelling dramas that they are: Blacks wife fainting at his resentencing; the line of prisoners cheering Black when he was released on appellate bond; Amy St. Eve, the judge at Blacks trial, sitting in the Supreme Court during oral argument of the case; and Blacks assistant and a defense witness selling T-shirts outside the courthouse that read Conrad Will Win. - The Federal Lawyer (US) Oct/Nov 2012 issue ... kudos to Skurka for being able to breathe some life into his book. -- Regina Leader-Post
