An update on last week’s post on Performance Marketing Association, Inc. v. Hamer: with the posting of the Court’s docket book for the May term, we learned that the oral argument in Performance Marketing has been continued from May 16 to the 9:00 a.m. sitting on Wednesday, May 22nd.

Although it is virtually certain to go unmentioned, the oral argument in Performance Marketing will take place against the backdrop of U.S. Senate approval of the Marketplace Fairness Act of 2013, which would grant states the authority to require online and catalog retailers to collect sales taxes on sales to in-state buyers, so long as the states have simplified their sales tax laws in one of several ways, and the online merchant has gross annual receipts from nationwide online sales in excess of $1 million. According to news reports, the prospects for passage of the MFA in the House are uncertain.
