On behalf of and in cooperation with teams of professors, Huhn has submitted amicus briefs to the United States Supreme Court, the United States Courts of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and the Ninth Circuit.
The Supreme Court brief was filed on January 5, 2012, in Docket No. 11-398 in support of the Affordable Care Act. This brief contends that the law must be presumed constitutional because the principle of Separation of Powers requires the courts to defer to Congress on matters of economic policy.
The briefs filed with the Sixth and Ninth Circuit Courts of Appeals support affirmative action in University admissions. Specifically, the briefs review the long history of legislation in the United States that has unfairly attempted to prevent legislatures and other state agencies from adopting laws and policies that promote civil rights or that advance educational opportunities for minority groups.
These briefs are attached below.
