Citizens for Science Brief in Cobb County Case

Michigan Citizens for Science, along with similar groups in several other states, has filed a brief with the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals in the Cobb County disclaimer case. That brief can be found here (pdf format). On behalf of MCFS, I'd like to thank Lynn Hogue, Catherine Ross, Reed Cartwright, Sarah Pallas and everyone else who worked so hard on this brief. I'd also like to thank again Timothy Sandefur for his work on our brief in the trial phase of the case.
