Jewel v. NSA — Amicus Supporting Rehearing En Banc

Jeremiah Morgan Constitutional Law, U. S. Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit

Today, our firm filed its third amicus brief in the Jewel litigation, this time in support of a Petition for Rehearing En Banc before the Ninth Circuit. A panel of the Ninth Circuit once again ruled in support of the federal government, holding that the Jewel plaintiffs had failed to set forth sufficient evidence to establish standing and also affirming the district court’s exclusion of such evidence as the plaintiffs offered.  Our amicus brief argued that the panel’s decision was in conflict with a previous decision of the Ninth Circuit (Fazaga); that the panel erred by not waiting to consider the Supreme Court’s decisions in Fazaga and Zubaydah; and that the judiciary’s failure to consider challenges to unlawful activity of Deep State agencies threatens our republican form of government.
