SCOTUS Cert Grant in Franchise Tax Board of California v. Hyatt III

It may have been lost in all of the news surrounding Justice Kennedy’s retirement, but yesterday the Supreme Court granted certiorari in Franchise Tax Board of California v. Hyatt, which presents the question:

“Whether Nevada v. Hall, 440 U.S. 410 (1979), which permits a sovereign state to be haled into another state’s courts without its consent, should be overruled.”

This is the case’s third trip to the Supreme Court.

You can follow the merits briefs as they come in at SCOTUSblog and at the Supreme Court’s website.
