Legal Answers
4 Questions Answered

Q. I have a green card for 23 years. With the latest immigration law has anything changed in terms of naturalization?
A: There have been no recent changes in the immigration laws, as Congress has been unable to agree on any immigration reform measures. That said, you might want to become naturalized, as their are certain benefits to being a US citizen, including reducing the chance that you might be deported if a legal issue occurred.
Q. Are court documents considered public domain for purposes of posting them on a website or blog?
A: Depends on what the document is. Judicial opinions and orders from Federal Judges are not copyrighted, as it is Federal work product. For state judicial opinions and orders, the courts have not allowed an enforceable copyright. Recently some lawyers sued West and Lexis for having their briefs as part of their research products. West & Lexis argued fair use, and while an order was issued in their favor, the written opinion as to reasons for the judges decision has not yet been released. That said, there are copyrighted documents that are filed that do not lose their copyright (e.g. the Harry Potter books have been attached to filings in previous cases).
Q. What is an amicus brief
A: Amicus or amicus curiae is Latin for a 'friend of the court.' An amicus curiae is not a litigant, but a party interested in the outcome of the case. Amicus briefs are legal position statements that the interested party must first ask the court for, and receive, permission to file. The amici curiae (plural) seek to influence and persuade the court to take a particular position in the case.
