Civic Commitment

Most recently, Grossman LLP co-authored and filed an amicus curiae brief with the United States Supreme Court in American Tradition Partnership, Inc. v. Bullock, No. 11-1179, a significant case dealing with critical issues concerning campaign-finance laws in the wake of the Supreme Court’s Citizens United ruling in 2010.  Judd  Grossman previously assisted in researching and writing an amicus curiae brief on behalf of the prevailing party in Utah v. Evans, 536 U.S. 452 (2002).  Judd also has advised Holocaust survivors seeking reparations for work performed in ghettos, he has represented Hurricane Katrina victims in connection with their efforts to obtain FEMA benefits, and, acting as a Special Prosecutor, he obtained a unanimous affirmance of a criminal conviction in People v. Smith, 849 N.Y.S.2d 789 (2d Dep’t 2008).  He currently serves on the board of directors of Urban Arts Partnership, a nonprofit organization in New York that advances the academic and social development of underserved public-school students through arts-integrated education programs.
