Local Rule 29.1. Brief of an Amicus Curiae

 

(a) Leave to File. The court ordinarily will deny leave to file an amicus brief when, by reason of a relationship between a judge assigned to hear the proceeding and the amicus curiae or its counsel, the filing of the brief might cause the recusal of the judge.

 

(b) Disclosure. The required disclosure statement under FRAP 29(c)(5) must appear in the first footnote on the first page of the brief.
