In November, On Point posted on The Amicus Machine, a study of amicus briefs filed in SCOTUS. Today’s edition of SCOWstats reports on amicus briefs in SCOW: how many are filed, who is filing them, and do they influence the discussion of the issues. Click SCOWstats to learn more.
Note that for criminal appeals Attorney Rob Henak (on behalf of WACDL) and the Remington Center are among SCOW’s “best friends” in that they file a fair number of amicus briefs and the justices engage them. Nice work!
