Mentioned

Chicago Daily Law Bulletin article titled, “Rule amended to require a brief with amicus request” describes the newly amended rule which requires that motions for leave to file amicus curiae briefs in the Illinois Supreme Court now include the proposed brief. Mike Resis is referenced due to his frequent filings of amicus curiae briefs in the Illinois Supreme Court as well as his position as chair of the amicus committee for the Illinois Association of Defense Trial Counsel.

In the article, Mike suggests that not only does the amended rule encourage good practice among the state’s bar, but it also helps make the court’s job of deciding who it should allow to appear as amicus easier.
