Amicus Curiae Brief

BFT has filed an amicus curiae (“friend of the court”) brief supporting the recent lawsuit filed against BUSD regarding the California Public Records Act request made by Judicial Watch.  

An amicus brief is an opportunity for a third party (in this case BFT) to formally support plaintiffs and to offer their perspective to the Court. We stand with our members at King against this new threat, and emphasize our members’ right to safety and to free speech and free association, as well as our student and employees’ rights to privacy.  We emphasize the serious disruption to the learning environment caused by this request and and the consequences that will incur from this scrutiny of professional communications.
