The Federal Court said Thursday it won't interfere, saying Black can make his arguments in writing.

Black's empire once included the Chicago Sun-Times, The Daily Telegraph of London, The Jerusalem Post and papers across the U.S. and Canada. He returned to Canada in May after a 42-month U.S. prison sentence. Black remains a member of the British House of Lords.
