2017 Amicus Briefs Summary

In 2017, CWLC participated in thirty amicus briefs addressing a variety of legal issues affecting justice and equality for women and girls.  These briefs were filed in the California Court of Appeal, the California Supreme Court, multiple federal District and Circuit courts, and even the United States Supreme Court. The issues addressed by the briefs included Title IX campus sexual assault and cyber harassment, women’s reproductive health, domestic violence, LGBTQ employment discrimination, pregnancy discrimination, and transgender veterans.

CWLC also filed three amicus briefs on our own behalf, related to the transferring of restraining orders between the Family Court and Juvenile Court.

CWLC remains active in our amicus participation and will continue to submit and sign on to briefs addressing the most important and pressing legal matters for women and girls.
