Yesterday, the Adams Law Group llc proudly filed a motion to permit the filing of an amicus curiae brief in support of Prof. John McAdams’ petition to have the Wisconsin Supreme Court hear an appeal of his lawsuit challenging his firing for writing an unpopular blog post.
Attorney Dan Adams worked with the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE) to file the motion – as well as the amicus brief.
FIRE is a nonpartisan, nonprofit, tax-exempt education and civil liberties organization dedicated to defending student and faculty rights at our nation’s institutions of higher education. Since its founding in 1999, FIRE has effectively and decisively defended freedom of speech, legal equality, due process, religious liberty, and sanctity of conscience on behalf of students and faculty nationwide via legal and public advocacy.
