  • Amicus Brief
  • State of New York v. Marquan W. Mackey-Meggs

    AFC signed on to an amicus brief drafted and filed by the law firm Morrison & Foerster LLP before the New York State Court of Appeals regarding Albany County’s Cyber-bullying Law. The brief argues that criminalizing cyber-bullying will have negative effects – namely, reinforcing and perpetuating the School-to-Prison Pipeline, pushing students out of school and into the criminal justice system. The brief also argues that better alternatives exist for dealing with cyber-bulling, such as school climate reform and restorative practices.
