There were nine amici curiae (Latin plural for “friends of the court”) in the Port Angeles case who filed a 30-page brief. I served as their attorney. It’s primary aim was to force the Court to look at the science on the subject of fluoridation. The links:

The City of Port Angeles and the Dental Foundation filed their Motion to Strike the IAOMT Amicus Brief.

The IAOMT Amici filed their Response of IAOMT Amici to Port Angeles’ Motion to Strike IAOMT Brief. The Supreme Court accepted both the brief and the defense of the brief.

Other fluoridation supporters filed their Fluoride Supporters’ Answer to IAOMT Amicus Brief. Attached to it was an article by Howard F. Pollick, Water Fluoridation and the Environment, Current Perspectives in the US. These documents were riddled with legal and scientific errors.

The IAOMT Amici cannot reply to the Fluoride Supporters’ Answer without permission from the Court. So the IAOMT Amici are asking to be allowed to reply to that answer.

Unfortunately, the Supreme Court said it had heard enough and declined our offer to reply to the fluoride supporters’ brief.
