More on Honest Services Fraud

I picked up today from Ellen Podgor's White Collar Crime Prof Blog the Vanderbilt Law Review En Banc Roundtable papers on Skilling v. United States involving the honest services issue. Readers will recall that Skilling and two companion cases are now pending before the Supreme Court on the honest services issue. I have previously blogged the honest services issue and its potential relationship to Tax Obstruction Crimes here.

The articles in the Roundtable are:

Nancy J. King, Introduction: Skilling v. United States, 63 Vand. L. Rev. En Banc 1 (2010)

William H. Farmer, Presumed Prejudiced, but Fair?, 63 Vand. L. Rev. En Banc 5 (2010)

Abbe David Lowell, Christopher D. Man & Paul M. Thompson, “Not Every Wrong is a Crime”: The Legal and Practical Problems with the Federal “Honest-Services” Statute, 63 Vand. L. Rev. En Banc 11 (2010)

Julie R. O’Sullivan, Honest-Services Fraud: A (Vague) Threat to Millions of Blissfully Unaware (and Non-Culpable) American Workers, 63 Vand. L. Rev. En Banc 23 (2010)
