Anticipating Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s Role in Tax Jurisprudence
November 19, 2020 | New York Law Journal
On October 27, 2020, following a swift yet politically fraught confirmation, Amy Coney Barrett replaced the late Ruth Bader Ginsberg as the ninth sitting justice on the Supreme Court. In her brief tenure on the United States Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit, Justice Barrett wrote unanimous opinions in two civil tax cases. In my latest article, I discuss then-Judge Barrett’s decisions in A.F. Moore & Associates, Inc. v. Maria Pappas and VHC, Inc. v. Commissioner of Internal Revenue and conclude that, setting aside questions regarding the timing of Justice Barrett’s appointment and confirmation and concerns as to how she might impact high-profile, politically-charged cases, practitioners can look forward to Justice Barrett’s contributions to the development of tax jurisprudence for many years to come.
