    “An amicus curiae (literally, “friend of the court”; plural, amici curiae) is someone who is not a party to a case and may or may not have been solicited by a party and who assists a court by offering information, expertise, or insight that has a bearing on the issues in the case; and is typically presented in the form of a brief. The decision on whether to consider an amicus brief lies within the discretion of the court.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amicus_curiae
