Agudath Israel intervenes, usually through the submission of amicus curiae (“friend of the court”) legal briefs, in court cases throughout the country that could have an impact on our community or on religious liberty in general. Judges read these briefs and in some cases have even cited our briefs in their decisions. We have filed many dozens of amicus curiae briefs in the U.S. Supreme Court, in many state Supreme Courts, and in other courts. In this section we include news about just some of the important briefs we have filed and signed onto, along with copies of the actual briefs.
