Partners Richard Sigal and Ken Roberts received the National Association of State Treasurers' corporate affiliate award (the only lawyers ever in the 30 years history of the award) for our legal service on its amicus brief cited by the Supreme Court of the United States in its decision upholding the position of all fifty states in the Davis v. Kentucky case and thereby eliminating potential billions of dollars of claims against many states for alleged unconstitutional market discrimination under the Commerce Clause of favoring its own bonds in permitting the interest income there from to be exempt from its state income tax and not similar treatment of the income on bonds of other states and corporations.
