Amicus Curiae briefs or "friend of the court" briefs may be submitted by any person or group with a demonstrable interest in the case. But there is no absolute right to file an amicus brief. You may do so only with the consent of all the parties to the proceeding (all Petitioners and Respondents) or with the permission of the Court. Be careful to follow the specific rules concerning notice to the parties and the form of a motion if the parties refuse to give consent.
Different word limits apply depending upon whether the case is still at the "Petition" stage of if certiorari has been granted. And, of course, the color of the cover is contingent on the stage of the proceeding and which party is being supported. In addition, if certiorari has been granted, Legal Printers LLC in compliance with the Rules, will file your brief electronically as well as in person at the Court.
Legal Printers LLC can guide you through the process and assure that your amicus brief complies with all the rules and requirements. We give "friend of the court" briefs the same personal attention as we do Cert. Petitions. Let us help you make your voice heard!
