Community Rights Council
The Community Rights Council was an American non-profit, public interest law firm formed in 1997. Its general aim was to assist communities in protecting their health and welfare. It has since been absorbed into the Constitutional Accountability Center, a liberal advocacy group.
Filed a brief supporting the federal government in Gonzales v. Raich (2005). It was an alliance of convenience not related to the central element of the case, the growth of medical marijuana. Had the federal government lost, it would have meant that many laws and regulations favored by the group might not be enforceable except through state-level action.
