ATLA Amicus Curiae Program
The ATLA Amicus Curiae Committee works to keep abreast of important judicial decisions. All too often, the committee is not notified of critical civil legal issues pending before the Arkansas Supreme Court until after the Court has rendered its decision. At that point, it is often too late since petitions for a rehearing are rarely granted after a decision is issued. The ATLA Amicus Curiae Committee is empowered by the ATLA Board of Governors to review cases involving important civil issues that have a far-ranging impact beyond the isolated facts of the particular case. Obviously, ATLA cannot become involved in every important case but wants to be made aware of important decisions being appealed which could have a significant impact upon important legal issues. Important issues include critical procedural matters; evidentiary rulings; questions of substantive law; jury instructions; post-verdict motions and related matters. ATLA strongly urges its members to immediately notify the Amicus Curiae Committee Chair as soon as an appeal is imminent. Usually, the issues involved will center around tort law but the ATLA Amicus Curiae Committee is open to consideration of any important civil legal issue. Don't wait.
