Abstract

This is the Tillman/JEP amicus brief in support of the President (in his official capacity). Our arguments touch on: [1] "office" and "officer" as used in the Constitution; [2] the scope of the term "emoluments" as used in the Constitution; [3] capacity--should this lawsuit be plead as an official or individual capacity lawsuit?; and [4] standing/redressability.

We specifically respond to amici filings by the Legal Historians and the Federal Courts Scholars.
