Legal Center

Whether ensconced in the Bill of Rights of the United States Constitution or the Declaration of Rights in the Wyoming Constitution, individual liberty can be vindicated in court.  The Wyoming Liberty Group contributes to important cases with amicus curiae (friend-of-the-court) briefs when we can provide additional support for constitutional principles that are not or cannot be addressed by other parties. The Wyoming Liberty Group recently expanded its legal center to represent parties directly, and fight for the vindication of founding principles in the state and federal courts.

The following areas represent cases of significant constitutional concern where the Wyoming Liberty Group participated.
