ABSTRACT
The article discusses several court cases wherein the U.S. Supreme Court issued its ruling on honest services fraud under U.S. Code (U.S.C.) Section 1346. In the case Skilling vs. United States, the Court's citation that the statute only prohibits bribery and kickback schemes, effectively limits the use of Section 1346, while Black v. United States reasoned that a person can be indicted for violation of Section 1346 if he/she uses his/her position for private gain, and breaches his/her duty of loyalty.
