Alan Horowitz Comments on Washington Mutual Decision in Ninth Circuit in Tax Disputes Week

"Ninth Circuit's Washington Mutual Decision Now Final"
Tax Disputes Week
06.16.11Alan Horowitz discusses the decision by the the Department of Justice not to file either a petition for rehearing before the Ninth Circuit or a petition for certiorari before the Supreme Court reviewing the Ninth Circuit 's decision in Washington Mutual v. US, meaning the Ninth Circuit's decision is now final. "[The decision to not review the case] was not surprising because the chances of en banc review typically are very slim where you have a unanimous ruling by a three-judge panel, especially where the judges approve two different theories supporting that result," Horowitz said. Horowitz, Steven Dixon, and Maria Jones from Miller & Chevalier acted as counsel for Washington Mutual.
