SUPREME COURT ADVOCACY
Chris argued and won Kentucky Dep’t of Revenue v. Davis, 128 S.Ct. 1801 (2008), in the Supreme Court of the United States. The case upheld the constitutionality of the tax laws of more than 40 States which do not tax interest income on their own municipal bonds, but do tax the interest paid on bonds issued by sister States.
Davis directly affected the tax treatment of approximately $2.4 trillion in municipal bonds outstanding nationwide, and saved the States an estimated $3.0 billion in tax refund claims. Unfortunately, Chris had not been retained on a contingent fee basis.
