A federal judge ruled Wednesday that former media mogul Conrad Black may not travel to Canada while awaiting sentencing for swindling the Hollinger International media empire he once ran out of millions of dollars. US District Judge Amy St. Eve cited a possibility that the Canadian-born newspaper executive could try to stay in his native country and then fight extradition to the United States. Black is free on bond. He was convicted July 13 of three counts of mail fraud and one count of obstruction of justice in what federal prosecutors describe as a multi-million-dollar fleecing of Hollinger International Inc.
