Our goal is to support specific litigation that will clarify the law under which a farmer operates. Support may come in the form of paying a portion of legal fees incurred in a particular case, or through the preparation of an amicus curiae brief (brief filed with the presiding court supportive of the agricultural perspective as applied to the particular case). Research of a specific agricultural law issue may also provide assistance to a farmer’s counsel. Also, if the farmer does not have an attorney, INAgLaw may assist in locating counsel with knowledge in the legal area at issue.
- Present precedent-setting legal questions to Indiana agriculture.
- Present questions of law generally applicable to Indiana agriculture rather than factual disputes.
- Are at the appropriate litigation stage, preferably at the Court of Appeals or Supreme Court level.
- Are approved by the advisory committee and board of directors.
An application for support can be found here.
