Supreme Court to tackle honest services fraud (UPDATE: takes Skilling case)



Adam Liptak at the Times has a good overview of two cases (appeals by former Alaska legislator Bruce Weyhrauch case and media magnate Conrad Black) in which the Court will have the chance to address a major engine of overcriminalization. Earlier Point of Law coverage here.

Update later Tuesday: the high court has agreed to hear a third honest-services case, that of Jeffrey Skilling of Enron (who also raises other issues in his appeal): WSJ Law Blog and more, Kennerly. Tom Kirkendall makes a case in Skilling's defense.
