More than 100 law students, along with nearly 100 solo and small-firm practitioners and legal educators, are urging the U.S. Supreme Court to eliminate copyright protection for state annotated codes of law and certain other state and local legal materials.

The case Georgia v. Public.Resource.Org is unusual in that both parties, and all of the friends of the court, including the law students, want the justices to take up and decide the case—but for different reasons. The justices are scheduled to take their first look at the case in their private conference June 13.
