SEPARATION OF POWERS AMICUS BRIEFS AT JUDICIAL WATCH
Sheila Vitale is an experienced author and media producer of biblical resources who has released over 1,000 audio lectures and hundreds of illustrations, books, and DVDs. Currently, Sheila Vitale leverages her spiritual and biblical expertise as the founder of Living Epistles Ministries in New York. Living Epistles Ministries is a teaching ministry that develops free biblical resources and Christian literature, in addition to books and other materials that are available for purchase. The ministry dedicates 15 percent of all income to tithes and offerings for like-minded organizations such as the American Bible Society, Christian Broadcasting Network and Judicial Watch.
Since its founding in 1994, Judicial Watch has served as a conservative but non-partisan education foundation that advocates for ethics and morality in the public sector. The organization also regularly files amicus curiae, or amicus briefs, in court regarding matters of public interest. Currently, the organization’s briefs focus on areas ranging from public corruption and the rule of law to government transparency and the separation of powers.
Judicial Watch’s briefs on the separation of powers lobby against governmental overreach and actions that violate the separations between the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of government. In addition, the organization works to ensure separations between the federal government and state authorities. Currently, separation of powers amicus briefs focus on four areas: executive abuse, judicial activism, political purchase of judicial influence, and initiatives and referendums.
