Our first Supreme Court filing was October 16, 1981, supporting the legality of President Reagan’s action against striking air traffic controllers. Of course, we have also filed many other briefs in various U.S. District Court, U.S. Courts of Appeals, State Supreme Courts, etc. All of these filings since the late 1990’s and some earlier briefs are available on this website, and we are working to post the older filings as well.
