SCOTUS Justices Question Selection Of Skilling Jury

Via Wall Street Journal:
. . .On appeal, Mr. Skilling’s lawyers contended that the economic damage Enron wreaked on its home city had so poisoned the jury pool that his trial should have been moved elsewhere. In addition, they argued that one of the crimes for which he was convicted, “honest services” fraud, is too vaguely defined to be constitutional. Federal law makes it a crime to deprive another of “the intangible right of honest services.”

If they can't find a jury for Enron cases in Houston, how can they find a jury for 9/11 cases in NYC? - Greg Pollowitz
