Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
13-553 11th Cir. Dec 9, 2014
TBD TBD TBD OT 2014

Issue: (1) Whether a state “discriminates against a rail carrier” in violation of 49 U.S.C. § 11501(b)(4) when the state generally requires commercial and industrial businesses, including rail carriers, to pay a sales-and-use tax but grants exemptions from the tax to the railroads’ competitors; and (2) whether, in resolving a claim of unlawful tax discrimination under 49 U.S.C. § 11501(b)(4), a court should consider other aspects of the state's tax scheme rather than focusing solely on the challenged tax provision. CVSG: 05/27/2014.
