Supreme Court Affirms Beverage Tax

July 19, 2018

Pennsylvania’s Supreme Court has just affirmed Philadelphia’s right to adopt a beverage tax ordinance, in yesterday’s Williams v. City of Philadelphia decision. The Firm is thrilled with the result, having contributed by filing an Amicus Brief on behalf of the Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadelphia supporting the City’s position. SBN’s Executive Director, Anna Shipp, said “Excellent! Congratulations to your team for all of your hard work!!” So congratulations to firm attorneys Diane Bernoff Sher, Lee Applebaum, and Jacqueline DiRubbo who co-authored the Amicus Brief.
