Listed below are links to weblogs that reference AMP v. Myriad Briefed and Distributed for Conference:


Why would an amicus brief (or for that matter, one of the parties' briefs) NOT be publicly available? This is a public proceeding, using taxpayer money to pay the judges reviewing the case. The case is on appeal, meaning there's no proprietary information at play. There's no reason a person should have to be well-connected in order to see these briefs.


Myriad's brief in opposition is outstanding. Right out of the box, it correctly challenges the misrepresentation by the ACLU/PubPat ("Are human genes patentable?") of what the question is under 35 USC 101.

Dear Curmudgeon,
I believe one may view the briefs at the office of the Clerk of SCOTUS. If I am mistaken, please correct me.
Thank you.
