06.25.10Tim O'Toole discusses the Supreme Court decision in the case of former Enron Corp. CEO Jeffrey Skilling. The ruling restricts the use of the honest services fraud statute, limiting a law that prosecutors have relied on in many high-profile cases. "The days when a creative prosecutor could indict private individuals or public officials based on any sort of dishonest conduct are now largely gone," notes O'Toole.
