Media Mention

Bradley partner Bruce Ely was quoted in 1819 News on the Department of Justice (DOJ) appeal of a North Alabama federal judge’s ruling that the Corporate Transparency Act was “unconstitutional.”

“The filing of this Notice of Appeal was surprisingly close on the heels of the Federal District Court ruling, but conspicuously absent was a request for the Court of Appeals to suspend or “stay” the lower court’s order during the pendency of the appeal. Most of us practitioners expected that request, and it may still be filed — but at a later date,” commented Ely. This appeal came quickly after Judge Liles Burke’s ruling.

“The speed with which the DOJ filed this appeal certainly tells us they plan to fight, and they probably wanted to get that message out to the business community and practitioners as soon as possible,” Ely said.
