Two more amicus briefs supporting reversal on severability

Two more amicus curiae briefs urging reversal on the severability issue have been filed at the Court, in Nos. 11-393 and 11-400:

* Brief of the Chamber of Commerce of the United States of America as Amicus Curiae in Support of Reversal as to the Severability Issue

* Brief of the Family Research Council and 27 Members of the U.S. House of Representatives as Amici Curiae in Support of Petitioners and Reversal on the Issue of Severability Issue

Per the Court's briefing order, the amicus briefs addressing severability were (and are) due the same date as the parties' briefs. Amicus briefs on the other issues follow the normal rule, which means they are due seven days following the due date for the parties.
