The Office of the Solicitor General (OSG) filed the Government’s Memorandum in the cases filed against the Enhanced Defense Cooperation Agreement (EDCA) before the Supreme Court today. The Supreme Court required the submission of Memoranda after the oral arguments, giving the parties one last opportunity to summarize and tie together their arguments before the High Court rules on the case.
In its 42-page Memorandum, the OSG presented the Government’s case for the EDCA as a valid executive agreement that could stand even without the concurrence of the Senate.
