US v. Green, No. 08-10149

Defendant's wire fraud and bid rigging convictions are affirmed where: 1) defendant's conduct did not need to violate a rule or regulation of the E-Rate educational funding program in order to be fraudulent; 2) even accepting that her ultimate motives were laudable, defendant concealed material facts from the federal government in an attempt to induce it to fund her projects; and 3) the evidence at trial easily supported the jury's finding that defendant participated in multiple bid-rigging conspiracies.
