Storyboard Text

  • The Supreme Court is currently trying to make a decision on a case but they just got a Amicus Curiae Brief that I need to give to them.
  • We really need to make a decision.
  • You're probably wondering what that is and I'm here to explain. Let's go to my office first!
  • You see this letter I'm holding? This came from a special interest group that wants to influence the court's decision on this case. Let's go give it to them.
  • EmailFrom: Supreme CourtDid you take our letter?
  • Nobody is immune to outside influence even the Supreme Court and these groups know that so they write and send them these letters in hopes push them to rule in their interest.
  • One real example of when a letter was sent was in the case Gadelhak vs AT&T by the group EPIC which ruled THIS YEAR. But believe me there many of them so google some.
  • Amicus Curiae Briefs are important allow special interest groups to express their opinion on a case in a friendly way and help give the court some ideas on how to approach and rule.
