Neil Gorsuch on Corporations
He is married, has two daughters and lives in Boulder, where he is also an adjunct law professor at the University of Colorado. He has taught law courses on antitrust issues and legal ethics and professionalism, according to his biography on the university's website. He also wrote a 2009 book that argues against the legalization of assisted suicide and euthanasia.
His mother, the late Anne Gorsuch, was the first female director of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, under then-President Ronald Reagan.
Gorsuch's opinion plainly takes some joy in demonstrating that not only does the dormant commerce clause not apply--the doctrine also doesn't make much sense.
That same instinct is present last year in DMA v. Brohl, in which Gorsuch singled out one aspect of dormant commerce clause doctrine--the Quill rule that exempts out-of-state mail order sales from state sales tax--as an "analytical oddity" that "seems deliberately designed" to be overruled eventually.
