March 19, 2019
Mary Beth Naumann will be receiving a distinguished Amicus Service Award at the mid-year meeting of the IMLA (International Municipal Lawyers Association) in Washington DC on March 29, 2019. The award recognizes her efforts in drafting the amicus brief in the Silva Jr. V. City and County of Honolulu case.
“Congratulations to Mary Beth for her exceptional service to the IMLA’s advocacy program,” said Managing Member Ellen Cappellanti. “This recognition of her dedication and commitment to advancing local government interests is well deserved.”
With respect to appellate litigation, the IMLA Legal Advocacy Program serves IMLA members and their governmental clients as an evaluation center, as an information outlet and in some cases as an amicus in litigation considered to have a significant impact on a substantial number of local governments on a national basis. The IMLA’s Amicus Service Award seeks to recognize lawyers who have been actively involved in legal advocacy for and on behalf of local governments and IMLA, and who have done exemplary work to protect and advance local government interests.
