First CAP Amicus Brief Filed


In November 2007, CAP filed its first amicus brief, in a case asking the NY Court of Appeals to grant review of a decision below which created deeply problematic standards limiting the State’s ability to intervene to protect children against abuse and neglect. CAP’s brief supported the state child protection agency and was written by CAP Faculty Director Elizabeth Bartholet with the help of CAP students Julianne Johnston and Grace Spulak.
