US v. Proj. on Govt. Oversight, 08-5182

In an action charging a nonprofit and an Interior Department economist under 18 U.S.C. section 209(a), which prohibits giving or receiving any contribution to or supplementation of salary "as compensation for [an individual's] services as an officer or employee of the executive branch," judgment for plaintiff is reversed as a defendant's intent to give or receive compensation for government services is a required element of the offense.
