Well, that brief is about the equivalent of a square of Charmin toilet tissue.

They can accept anything.
It doesn't mean that it has any bearing.

You do understand that amicus are "friend of the court" briefs.
Do you have proof that it had bearing on this case?

And this is what, the 4th thread on this subject today?

The crux of the majority's convoluted decision to ban enforcement of 1070 was based on the amicus brief.

Quote:
Judge Richard Paez wrote in today’s Court’s decision:
We stress that the question before us is not, as Arizona has portrayed, whether state and local law enforcement officials can apply the statute in a constitutional way… This formulation misses the point: there can be no constitutional application of a statute that, on its face, conflicts with Congressional intent and therefore is preempted by the Supremacy Clause.
I miss the convoluted part; seems very straightfoward.

I dont know what Mexican officials wrote in their Amicus brief, but unless it was that the USA should apply the consitutional provision of the "Supremacy Clause" I dont know how what Mexico would have written could have persuaded the court to this conclusion.


Money shot: Does anyone believe the court would have not come to this same decision without the Mexican Amicus brief.
