This is the Tillman/JEP amicus brief in support of the President (in his official capacity). Our arguments touch on:  "office" and "officer" as used in the Constitution;  the scope of the term "emoluments" as used in the Constitution;  capacity--should this lawsuit be plead as an official or individual capacity lawsuit?; and  standing/redressability.
We specifically respond to amici filings by the Legal Historians and the Federal Courts Scholars.
