What organizations or interest groups have filed Amicus Curiae briefs to Carr v. United States?
An Indiana federal district court convicted Thomas Carr of violating the Sex Offender and Registration and Notification Act. The Act imposes penalties on anyone who is a convicted sex offender, and traveling in interstate or foreign commerce, knowingly fails to register as a sex offender, unless he proves that "uncontrollable circumstances" prevented him from doing so. On appeal, Carr argued that he did not violate the act because he traveled before the Act was passed. The Seventh Circuit held that the Act does not require that the defendant's travel postdate its enactment, and, consequently, affirmed the district court.

You asked this question a couple of days ago. I answered, and gave you the link to the docket site where you can go to check back.
As yet there have been no Amicus briefs filed, but the deadline has not yet passed. In most cases any briefs will be filed right before the deadline, because the writers want a) all the time they can to write them, and b) to wait to see if any new court ruling are handed down in similar cases from other courts before the deadline.
