Amicus Briefs

Post

Amicus curiae is a legal Latin phrase, literally translated as “friend of the court.” It is the name for a brief filed with the court by someone who is not a party to the case.

With Fred Hiestand at the helm of CJAC’s Appellate Program, CJAC regularly files such “friend of the court” briefs on issues of concern to its broad membership of businesses in an effort to advocate to and assist the court on cases impacting civil liability. 

Below is the list of cases in which CJAC has recently filed amicus briefs.
