On July 1, 2014, the U.S. Supreme Court granted the petition for a writ of certiorari filed by the Direct Marketing Association. The DMA is represented by Brann & Isaacson partners George S. Isaacson and Matthew P. Schaefer.
The DMA seeks review of a Tenth Circuit ruling that the Tax Injunction Act bars federal court jurisdiction over a constitutional challenge brought by the DMA to a 2010 Colorado law that requires out-of-state retailers to comply with burdensome notice and reporting obligations that are only indirectly related to the payment of use tax on remote sales. Brann & Isaacson is tax counsel to the DMA and represents over 100 multichannel and online companies. The United State Supreme Court accepts review in only about 70 out of 7000 petitions filed each session.
