Judge rejects GOP effort to block tax provision in Biden stimulus bill

Source: The Hill

A federal judge on Wednesday ruled against an effort by Ohio's Republican attorney general to temporarily block a provision of President Biden's coronavirus relief law that forbids states from using federal aid to offset any future tax cuts.

n a narrow victory for the Biden administration, District Court Judge Douglas Cole ruled that Ohio's lawsuit against the tax provision has merit and may very well succeed in court but that a preliminary injunction against the law's enforcement would be inappropriate at this stage, when it is unlikely that the Treasury Department would take action against the state.

"The bottom line is this - a preliminary injunction that stands no meaningful prospect of ever being enforced, as the Secretary is unlikely to be in a position to recoup funds while this suit is pending, adds nothing by way of clarity," wrote Cole, a Trump appointee on the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Ohio.

"Thus, while the Court finds that irreparable harm likely exists, the requested preliminary injunction does not avoid that harm," he added.
