Deepak Gupta Gets Call to Argue Position Trump's DOJ Abandoned
By Tony Mauro
If doing something twice in a row makes a trend, then the court launched a significant one on Monday afternoon.
July 9, 2018 Law360 - The U.S. Supreme Court's most recent term ended with a series of blockbuster decisions including Trump v. Hawaii, (upholding the third version of the presidential travel ban), Janus v. American Federation of State, County, and Municipal Employees, (denying public unions the right to require dues payments by nonmembers) and South Dakota v. Wayfair Inc. (overturning Quill Corp. v. North Dakota and its physical presence test for imposing sales tax collection responsibilities on out-of-state retailers). In such an environment, it is easy to overlook Wisconsin Central Ltd. v. United States. While the short-term stakes in Wisconsin Central are not as high as the stakes of these other cases, the long-term implications of Wisconsin Central will prove equally significant.
