Does not being covered by the "honest services" law mean a practice is illegal? Some of the examples Brian mentioned sound a lot like fraud. Could they be prosecuted on that basis?

To say the "Court sided with" one party over the other in its decision is a crutch that is increasingly used in stories --- and should be discarded. No matter how biased we may think Scotus is these days, it's not appropriate.

Have you seen what Robert Bork had to say about Kagan? I thought he had died but he's still spewing. Just imagine if this man had become a Supreme Court Justice!
