High Court Sides With Skilling, Black – WSJ.com

I find the idea of letting any of the Enron people off the hook for legal technicalities to be disgusting. Here is a case where a very powerful man colluded with others to engage in activities that caused the financial ruin of millions of people whose life savings were tied up in Enron for one reason or another. Skilling’s guilt is not questioned. And the door is now open such that other crimes committed in much the same manner as the Enron scandal may be more difficult to prosecute. This ruling on the part of the SCOTUS may even embolden other white-collar criminals to act contrary to law to the detriment of more innocent people.
