Andy Thompson, Green Bay Press Gazette •

Six organizations filed amicus — or friend-of-the-court — briefs with the Supreme Court in March. The briefs are intended to advise the court of relevant information about a pending case.

Briefs were filed by the Juvenile Law Center; Professors of Criminal Law, Criminal Procedure and Constitutional Law; the American Psychological Association; the Innocence Network; Current and Former Prosecutors; and the Independent Law Enforcement Instructors and Consultants.

“(The case) is a travesty of justice, and I hope things turn out in Brendan’s favor,” said Marsha Levick, deputy director and chief counsel of the Juvenile Law Center in Philadelphia.
