Supreme Court Calls for Further Analysis of Tax Case

This morning, the Supreme Court called for the views of the United States Solicitor General (“CVSG”)SupremeCourt2 on whether the Court should grant cert in Comptroller of the Treasury of Md v. Wynne, No. 13-485. The case concerns how the dormant commerce clause limits local taxation.

The Court uses the CVSG procedure with respect to only about 10 petitions a year. It indicates at least some degree of interest: the chances of a cert-grant increase significantly in such cases.

IMLA and its partners filed the only amicus brief in the case, which we discussed here.
