Minnesota v. National Tea Company
The grounds of state court decision, holding a graduated tax on gross income from chain stores unconstitutional, being obscure, and the jurisdiction of this Court to review being therefore in doubt, the judgment is vacated and the cause remanded for further proceedings so that the state and federal questions may be clearly separated. P. 309 U. S. 555.
205 Minn. 443, 286 N.W. 360, vacated.
Certiorari, 308 U.S. 547, to review the affirmance of judgments granting refunds of taxes.
Messrs. Matthias N. Orfield and George W. Markham, both of St. Paul, Minn., for petitioner.
Mr. Michael J. Doherty, of St. Paul, Minn., for respondents.
Mr. Justice DOUGLAS delivered the opinion of the Court.
