Learn how the U. S. Supreme Court narrowed the scope of the “honest services” federal fraud statute. Understand how the Court’s ruling will affect the cases of public and corporate officials accused of fraudulent activity in the course of their duties.

On June 24, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Skilling v. United States that the federal “honest services” fraud statute (18 U.S.C. §1436) covers only bribery and kickback schemes. The Court cited its decision in Skilling to vacate “honest services” convictions in two other cases: Black v. United States and Weyhrauch v. United States. But the majority did not find the statute unconstitutional, so the statute remains as a tool for federal prosecutors, albeit more limited in its application. Get grounded in what “honest services” fraud really means after the Skilling decision. Hear how three top-notch lawyers who have defended public and corporate officials accused of white collar crime for decades are going to investigate and manage these cases now that the Supreme Court has spoken.
