Several tanker owners filed a suit to challenge the validity of the tax. In 2004, the Alaska Superior Court held that the tax violated the Tonnage Clause of the U.S. Constitution without addressing the Due Process and Commerce Clauses. In 2005, after the city’s motion, the court reconsidered and vacated its 2004 decision and ruled, without addressing the Tonnage Clause issue, that the tax’s apportionment method violated the Due Process and Commerce Clauses of the U.S. Constitution.” (Justice Rule).
