Bradley attorney Bruce Ely was quoted in Law360 on some of the biggest state and local tax cases to watch in 2018. Among the most significant cases is South Dakota v. Wayfair, which the U.S. Supreme Court may decide to take up this year.

Some of leading state and local tax lawyers still prefer a congressional solution.
“We all think that if the court would simply grant cert, it would send a message to Congress to finally step in and pass marketplace fairness, remote transaction parity or something,” said Ely. “But it looks like that’s not going to happen anytime soon.”
