A weekend of legal briefs.
Well 3 legal briefs anyway. I read the first 2 on Thursday night, (in the span of about 4 hours,) but I didn’t find the last one until today. These are called amici curiae briefs, (but most people just say “amicus”,) which means friend of the court. As far as I know, these are usually filed in support of the appellant. It’s actually one of those weird legal latin phrases, it’s actually “amicus curiae,” but if it’s plural, (and there are 3 in this case,) it’s amici curiae.) I won’t even go into pronunciation of this, let’s just say different people pronounce words different ways. I think I had a bit too much of the briefs in one night though, because on Thursday night at around 12, I went into a state of hilarity without even trying, (without starting the process of staying up for 24 hours or anything like that.) It was just weird, because I have no idea what caused it. Anyway, here are the briefs in question:
