Banfield v. Cortes


State files brief in opposition to Amicus Curiae brief

The counsel for appellee Carol Aichele, Secretary of the Commonwealth, filed a brief in opposition to the amicus curiae brief by the Rutgers School of Law Constitutional Rights Clinic. The brief argues that the amicus brief “improperly relies on evidence that is not part of the certified record” and also “relies on evidence that cannot help this court answer this appeal.”

Therefore, the brief requests through these assertions that the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania confirm the ruling by the Commonwealth Court that granted summary relief to the state.
