Description: Honest services fraud, an immensely nebulous charge, has been the go-to, catch-all weapon for any prosecutor pursuing a public corruption case.  In fact, in recent years, any sort of self-dealing or slimy behavior was ripe for a honest services fraud charge regardless of the presence or absence of actual public corruption.   That all changed when the U.S. Supreme Court handed down its decision in Skilling v. United States, narrowing the reach of honest services fraud and limiting its application.  Through the use of a detailed hypothetical, high profile defense attorney Abbe D. Lowell and this distinguished panel dissect the Supreme Court’s Skilling decision and probe its real and perceived effects on fraud and public corruption cases.  Are undisclosed conflicts of interest off the table?  If bribery and kickbacks are now the essence of a honest services fraud charge, then what exactly must the government prove to make its case?  And what about all those cases already pending, will they survive motions to dismiss?  This program explores all of these questions, and many more, to provide white collar defense practitioners with the key strategies for their pending and future honest services fraud cases.
