    I'm on a team writing an amicus brief for the Supreme Court!!

    Not only do I get pro bono hours for it, but it's for a free speech cause!

    Big congrats!
    3 For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures --1 Corinthians 15:3-4 (borrowed with gratitude from 37818's sig)

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    I'm certain she's referring to the US Supreme Court.

    I only recall assisting with one brief at the USC - an invited opposition to a petition for certiorari (the petition was denied).
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    I don't think there is anything hush hush about it. Mass Citizens for Life has asked for some Harvard students to draft an amicus brief concerning a law in California that requires crisis pregnancy centers to disseminate information on where pregnant women can obtain abortions (in some cases state funded).
