WHAT ELSE YOU CAN DO
- Read the Amici Curiae brief and add your endorsement and supporting statement
- Forward the press release to your media contacts and on social media.
- Please consider a financial contribution to help with the substantial costs of this case. Carolyn Hill is fortunate to have a dedicated pro-bono lawyer, Sam Stretton, but there have been fees and expenses that urgently need to be covered, including a $1500 fee to cover an expert witness.
