The Supreme Court of Alaska asked the ACLU of Alaska and the Alaska Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers to file an amicus curiae friend-of-the-court brief explaining their positions on the underlying issue in Huber v. State, Department of Corrections, and two related cases.

The issue the court is deciding is what procedures Alaska prisoners need to follow in order to access the court system when they believe the government has violated their rights.
