Johnston Quoted on Honest Services Fraud

27 August 2010 Inside Counsel News

Foley Partner Pamela Johnston was quoted in an article that appeared in the August 2010 issue of InsideCounsel titled "Supreme Court Decision Curtails Prosecuters' Use of Honest Services Fraud Charges." Johnston discusses a Supreme Court ruling that severely restricts the honest services fraud doctrine, stating that the Court's ruling will narrow prosecutions of the well-used statute moving forward. She notes that Congress passed the honest services statute with flexible applications in 1988 after a Supreme Court decision in 1987 held that mail and wire fraud laws applied strictly to tangible property.
