    “Where do you live?” This seemingly straightforward question has been the source of major contention between taxpayers and the Franchise Tax Board for many years, resulting in time-consuming appeals, exhausting searches for documents and witnesses, significant audit resources, and, in some cases, expensive litigation.

    No word from Supreme Court on Bay Mills case

    SCOTUSblog data tells us that Justices Ginsburg and Kagan have not yet written for the December sitting, which is when the Court heard the Bay Mills argument. Usually, to balance workload, each Justice is assigned one opinion per sitting. But the Court heard 11 arguments in December, so at least two Justices will have two assignments. Justice Scalia, we know after today, has written twice for December, so we can say with some limited certainty that he will not be the author of the majority opinion in Bay Mills. In other words, it could be anyone.

     Applebee’s DWI death trial begins

    The Santa Fe Applebee’s restaurant where convicted drunken driver James Ruiz was first served alcohol on March 5, 2010 – before the crash that killed two sisters in town for a basketball tournament – turned a “blind eye” to the fact that some alcoholics can mask their symptoms, the family’s attorney told a federal jury Tuesday.
