Jefferson v. United States

Docket: 12-111
Issue(s): Whether the Fourth Circuit, in conflict with this Court’s decision in United States v. Sun-Diamond Growers of California and the D.C. Circuit’s en banc decision in Valdes v. United States, correctly affirmed petitioner’s convictions, which rested on a jury instruction defining “official acts” as any and all activities that are “part [of] a public official’s position” based on “settled practice.”
