COLLETT FILES BRIEFS IN DOBBS
Law professor Teresa Collett filed three amicus curiae briefs with the U.S. Supreme Court in Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization this summer. The case involves the authority of states to prohibit elective pre-viability abortions and asks the court to rule on the constitutionality of a Mississippi law that prohibits abortions after 15 weeks of pregnancy. Pro-life advocates hope that the Court will uphold the law and, in so doing, overrule Roe v. Wade (1973) and Planned Parenthood v. Casey (1992). One brief was co-authored by Collett with alumna Renee Carlson ‘08 J.D. , general counsel for True North Legal, an initiative of the Minnesota Family Council. Oral argument for Dobbs v. Jackson was held on December 1.
