GATA Files Liberty Dollar 'amicus curiae' Brief

GATA's legal brief filed in U.S. District Court for the Western District of North Carolina in support of acquittal or a new trial for Liberty Dollar founder Bernard von NotHaus is cited in today's editorial in the New York Sun, "Von NotHaus' Question" -- the question being whether anyone but the government has the right to issue money.

The Sun says: "So where does Congress find the power to prohibit private coinage? GATA's brief argues that the right is protected by the 10th Amendment, which reserves to the people rights not delegated to the government by the Constitution or prohibited by it to the states."

The Sun's editorial can be found here:
