Amicus Brief in Fischer v. US

Following the events of January 6, 2021, countless rioters were indicted for various offenses, among them violation of 18 U.S.C. § 1512(c), which prohibits the obstruction of official proceedings. Now arguing before the Supreme Court of the United States, Petitioners in the case Fischer v. United States, 23-5572, claim that § 1512(c) does not apply to their actions on January 6th.

Along with our partners in this endeavor, Perry Law is proud to have filed an amicus curiae brief in support of the United States and its position that the crimes committed by the Petitioners on January 6th are firmly within § 1512(c)’s purview. After thorough examination of the legal issues at hand, our attorneys delivered a persuasive argument and keen analysis of the law to inform the Court’s decision in this pivotal case. The Perry Law Team who drafted this brief include Danya Perry, Joshua Stanton, and Torie Feldman.
