WHOmentors.com, Inc. expects to use an amicus curiae brief to "apprise the court of broad-based legal, social, and economic implications of a decision or point out its unintended consequences for a group not before the court."
Usually, an individual may represent him or herself in court (known as appearing "in propia persona"). However, this right does not extend to corporations or non-profit associations. See Merco Construction Engineers, Inc. v. Municipal Court, 21 Cal. 3d 724, 147 Cal. Rptr. 631 (1978) (overturning a law that allowed officers and employees of a corporation to represent the corporations). See also, Clean Air Transport Systems v. San Mateo County Transit District, 198 Cal. App. 3d 576, 578-579, 243 Cal. Rptr. 799, 800-801 (1st Dist. 1988) (preventing an individual from representing a non-profit association, even when she did not hold herself out to be an attorney and did not charge for the service, and rejecting arguments relating to the first amendment), rev. denied (4/27/88), cert. denied, 488 U.S. 862, 109 S. Ct. 160, 102 L. Ed. 2d 130 (1988).
In light of this, the best approach is to have all communications to a court on behalf of an organization or government agency prepared and signed by an attorney.
WHOmentors.com, Inc. supports the argument the Court should deny Appellants’ motion to overturn the temporary restraining order (TRO) prohibiting the implementation of Executive Order, dated January 27, 2017.
