Amicus Requests

Requests for NDRN to draft or join an amicus brief can be made by downloadng the NDRN Amicus Request form and submitting it to Kenneth Shiotani, NDRN's amicus coordinator

Factors influencing whether NDRN can grant a request include the importance of the issues to the P&A network, the procedural posture of the case, and the amount of time available for preparation and review of the amicus brief before it needs to be filed.
