Weyhrauch v. United States

Amicus curiae brief of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers in support of petitioner.

Brief filed: 09/21/2009


Weyhrauch v. United States

United States Supreme Court; Case No. 08-1196


The federal “honest services” fraud statute, 18 U.S.C. 1346, raises critical constitutional concerns in that it (i) is unconstitutionally vague and fails to provide the degree of fair warning of its scope or meaning, as required by the Due Process Clause, and (ii) invades a regulatory area constitutionally committed to the states under the doctrine of federalism.
