About the Amicus Library

Welcome to the United Policyholders Amicus Project library where you can read copies and summaries of briefs we file in courts throughout the United States on behalf of insurance consumers. A report titled "Twenty Years Protecting, Defending and Advancing Policyholders Rights" chronicles the topics covered in the 300+ amicus briefs the organization filed between 1991 and 2011.

The following is a list of cases in which United Policyholders has submitted Amicus Curaie briefs.
