Supreme Court Requests Government Response to Whirlpool’s Petition

We previously discussed the petition for writ of certiorari that was filed in the Supreme Court of the United States by Whirlpool Financial Corporation & Consolidated Subsidiaries and Whirlpool International Holdings S.a.r.l. & Consolidated Subsidiaries (collectively, Whirlpool); the amici briefs filed by The National Association of Manufacturers, the Silicon Valley Tax Directors Group, and three of the “Big 4” accounting firms in support of Whirlpool’s petition; and how the case is now up for consideration at the Supreme Court’s upcoming conference on September 28, 2022. We also noted how the US government waived its right to file a response to Whirlpool’s petition.

In the latest update regarding Whirlpool’s petition, in a minute entry on the docket sheet, the Supreme Court has requested that the government provide a response by September 19, 2022. That response will then be considered by the Supreme Court at its September 28 conference, absent a relisting of the matter for a later conference. We will continue to monitor further developments in Whirlpool’s case and provide any further updates as they are made available.
