Lawsuits / Amicus Briefs / Emergency Petitions / Comments on Proposed Regulations / Other

Sometimes, in our efforts to achieve health care freedom for all Americans, it is necessary for us to head to the courts. Whether as plaintiffs in a lawsuit, joining as "friends of the court" in someone else's lawsuit, or by filing emergency petitions against federal agencies, AAHF is working diligently to build the body of case law that asserts Americans' right to access the full range of health promotion and disease prevention therapies.

We believe that informed consumers make better decisions, and that health care is one of the most personal decisions individuals make. That is why our efforts are directed to:

  • Protecting the doctor-patient relationship;
  • Protecting the privacy of medical records;
  • Ensuring that supplement manufacturers can make truthful health claims so that consumers understand what they are buying and why;
  • Asserting states' Constitutional rights to regulate the practice of medicine;
  • Promoting the free flow of truthful, scientific information;
  • Expanding research into complementary and alternative therapies;
  • Protecting practitioners' rights to offer complementary and alternative therapies;
  • Preventing discrimination against complementary and alternative practitioners.

Listed by category are some of the activities we have undertaken to achieve those goals. While many of the documents are located on this web site, others can be found on the web site of our law firm, Emord & Associates, or at the federal web sites listed under each description. We have made every effort to provide links to the appropriate pages on those sites. In some instances, the documents are large and need to be downloaded to be read, in which case our link brings you only as far as the federal agency's listing; one more step should begin the download. If you discover that any of these links no longer work, please let us know so that we can update our site as soon as possible.

Also, go to Emord & Associates, P.C. web site where details on our legal activities, copies of lawsuits and injunctions, and more are posted.
