Honest services fraud, take 3

The Supreme Court heard oral argument in the Skilling case yesterday.  The case is the third case this term dealing with honest services fraud.  The Post reports here.  According to the article, “the court continued its skepticism about a federal law making it a crime to deprive the public or one’s employer of ‘honest services,’ asking whether the law is too vague to signal exactly what constitutes criminal behavior.”

I noted the two other cases involving honest services fraud here.
