Dale v. BSA Documents

     At the present time, the Lambda Legal Defense and Education Fund (LLDEF), who represented James Dale, has an extensive resource page on the court case. While the briefs had been linked directly to their site, they've revamped their site, so the links were broken. To prevent this from happening in the future, all the briefs in the Dale case are now available on this site. Most are in PDF files.
