DOJ Civil Rights Division Statements of Interest

In civil rights cases on issues of broad public concern, the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division sometimes files a "statement of interest." This is usually a document that takes no position on the facts of the case, but provides the court with a recommended framework to assess the plaintiffs’ claim. These statements are important policy documents, establishing the DOJ position on highly contested topics.
The below cases represent a special subset of the full Clearinghouse collection.
