Ind. Decisions - Still more on "Tax forgiveness and equality"

Armour v. Indianapolis, the Indiana Supreme Court sewer tax decision that was argued before the SCOTUS last week (long list of ILB entries here), is the subject of a March 4th editorial in the NY Times, headed "Equal Protection on Sewer Bills," that begins:

Sometimes, what seems to be a case with an obvious, common-sense answer ends up at the Supreme Court. Such is the curious case of the municipal sewer bill and the Constitution. The issue in Armour v. Indianapolis, which the court heard arguments on last week, is whether the city violated the equal protection rights of residents who prepaid their sewer bills and were not given a refund after the city changed its sewer fee policy.
