MATA Amicus Committee home page
 

 

Through its Amicus Committee, MATA maintains a high profile in the appellate courts. Its goal is to promote the administration of justice; to reform the law where justice so requires; and to advance the cause of those seeking redress for injury while steadfastly resisting efforts to curtail their rights.

  

Since 1987 the Committee has appeared more than seventy times in appellate courts. Most recently, it has briefed the following topics in State and Federal courts of last resort:

 

●      federal pre-emption (Reckis);

●      affidavits for dram-shop cases (Bayless);

●      notice by way of the mode-of-operation (Bowers);  

●      workers’ compensation lien-statute (DiCarlo)(See Dicarlo SJC Decision); and

●      equitable tolling (Sanchez).

 

A matrix of MATA’s filings is available by clicking here. With a docket number, many briefs are available online here.  The Committee reviews solicitations from the courts, from MATA members, and like-minded interest groups to find cases worthy of input.
