Prof. Hickman Quoted by Wall Street Journal About Liberty Global Order

Prof. Kristin Hickman was quoted by the Wall Street Journal's Richard Rubin in an article, Treasury Loses in Bid to Plug Multi-Billion-Dollar Gap in 2017 Tax Law, about a federal district court order in Liberty Global, Inc. v. United States, No. 1:20-cv-03501-RBJ (D. Colo. Apr. 4, 2022), declaring that a Treasury Department temporary tax regulation violated the Administrative Procedure Act. The article quoted Prof. Hickman, who is known for her work criticizing Treasury Department and Internal Revenue Service for failing to comply with administrative law requirements, as observing that "[t]he Liberty Global order offers yet another example of a federal court refusing to give Treasury and the IRS a 'pass' from complying with general administrative law principles."
