Stam Law Firm Celebrates School Choice Week By Filing an Amicus Brief with the North Carolina Supreme Court

Every year, parents, students, teachers, and schools celebrate school choice week to raise public awareness of the importance of effective education options for children. This year, Stam Law Firm celebrated school choice week by filing an amicus brief with the North Carolina Supreme Court.

The amicus brief addresses arguments in State v. Kinston Charter Academy, a case about the relationship between charter schools and the State of North Carolina. Stam Law Firm filed the brief on behalf of Pinnacle Classical Academy, a Shelby, North Carolina charter school. The brief argues charter schools should not be treated as part of the State because they are independent. Treating charter schools as part of the State could have negative legal and regulatory implications for charter schools.

A full copy of the brief is publicly available on the North Carolina Appellate Court’s website.
