Armstrong v. N. Mariana Islands, No. 07-16126

By FindLaw Staff on August 07, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

In an action against a U.S. territory seeking recovery of income tax rebates and accrued interest under the territorial tax code, dismissal of the complaint is affirmed where the rebate provisions of the tax code provided the legal basis for plaintiff's rebate claims and thus the claims did not "arise under federal law" under 28 U.S.C. section 1331.
