Enron’s Skilling Seeks Bail While Appealing Fraud Convictions

Convicted ex-Enron Corp. Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Skilling, claiming a June U.S. Supreme Court ruling entitles him to a new trial, asked an appeals court to release him from prison on bail while he pursues an appeal.

“Jeffrey Skilling should immediately be released on bail pending this court’s ruling on his case on remand,’’ Daniel Petrocelli, Skilling’s lawyer, said in a bail request filed yesterday with the U.S. Court of Appeals in New Orleans.
