College of Law Associate Professor’s Brief Filed With U.S. Supreme Court

Published: Mar 26, 2014

LEXINGTON, Ky. (March 26, 2014) — University of Kentucky College of Law Associate Professor Scott Bauries, along with two co-authors, has written an amicus brief that was filed with the U.S. Supreme Court in Lane v. Franks, an appeal for which the court will hear oral argument April 28.

 

Bauries and his co-authors, Paul Secunda of Marquette University Law School and Sheldon Nahmod of Chicago-Kent College of Law, submitted the brief in support of the petitioner, a community college administrator who was allegedly fired for truthfully testifying in a criminal prosecution. The brief argues that the Supreme Court should reverse the 11th Circuit’s decision denying First Amendment protection to the petitioner’s testimonial speech. Joshua Branson of Kellogg, Huber, Hanson, Todd, Evans & Figel, PLLC, is an attorney of record on the brief, and more than 65 additional law professors signed on.

 

Bauries is pleased to be one of the lead authors on the brief.

 

“It’s a big milestone for me,” Bauries said. “Authoring an amicus brief on behalf of your colleagues is not something that happens frequently for a law professor, and it’s very gratifying when colleagues trust you with that responsibility.”

 

Bauries joined the UK Law faculty after working as an associate with McGuireWoods, LLP, where he practiced labor and employment Law, higher education law, and commercial litigation. He teaches advanced torts, civil procedure, employment law, education law, and state constitutional law. His scholarship focuses on issues relating to state and federal constitutional law and employment law in the education context. He is a contributor to The Edjurists, a law blog in the CASTLE network focusing on education law-related issues.
