Inducement of Agent to Travel Between States for a Fraudulent Purpose.
In United States v. Thomas
, the Second Circuit held that a conviction for inducing someone to travel between states for a fraudulent purpose, a violation of 18 U.S.C. 2314, can stand even if the person induced was an agent of the person cheated, and not the actual person. In so holding, the Court agreed with the Seventh and Ninth Circuits. The decision can be found here. An article on the case from the New York Law Journal can be found here
