Court U.S. Supreme Court
Citation 541 U.S. 600 (2004)
Date decided 2004


Whether a Congressional statute proscribing bribery of state, local, and tribal officials of entities that receive at least $10,000 in federal funds is a valid exercise of congressional authority under Article I of the Constitution.


The court will not presume the unconstitutionality of federal criminal statutes lacking an explicit provision of a jurisdictional hook, and will apply a means-end rationality test.
