Our Amicus Committee works hard on behalf of ASCDC members, submitting multiple amicus curiae briefs and letters each year in cases pending in state and federal courts. The Committee supports selected petitions seeking California Supreme Court review, and identifies appropriate cases in which to request publication of unpublished California appellate opinions that are of interest to our members.

If you have a matter that you wish to bring to the attention of the Amicus Committee, please contact the Chair, Steven Fleischman at Horvitz & Levy, (818) 995-0800 or sfleischman@horvitzlevy.com.

Below are links to briefs and letters the Committee has filed since 2000, compiled in a searchable database.
