APSAC's Voice is being heard by the United States Supreme Court!
On Thursday morning, the United States Supreme Court (SCOTUS) issued a decision in Ohio v. Clark. Earlier this year, APSAC submitted an Amicus Curiae Brief to SCOTUS in support of the petitioner, the State of Ohio.
Not only did SCOTUS rule unanimously in Ohio’s favor, they also cited APSAC’s brief in their decision! (Check it out on page 9 of the opinion!)
APSAC would like to express its deep gratitude and recognize Thomas D. Lyon, J.D., Ph.D. (Judge Edward J. and Ruey L. Guirado Chair in Law and Psychology University of Southern California Gould School of Law), and Jeremy A. Lawrence, J.D (Munger, Tolles & Olson LLP; Los Angeles, California) for their amazing work in writing the brief.
