Andrew Wise, leading D.C. defense attorney at Miller Chevalier and James Copland, director of the Center for Legal Policy at the Manhattan Institute, discuss the 'Honest Services' Fraud Statute post Skilling v. U.S. and Wise's defense of Kevin Ring, a former lobbyist who was involved in the Jack Ambramoff Indian lobbying scandal. Andrew Wise offers updated insights on Congressional attempts to reverse Skilling and redefine 'honest services' fraud as he similarly discussed at a Manhattan Institute forum in 2010.
