March 5, 2013 – Cosgrove Law Group, LLC’s David Cosgrove argued before the Missouri Supreme Court on behalf of the firm’s clients regarding the constitutional validity of a legislative act affecting animal care facilities. Cosgrove Law Group, LLC is seeking the Court’s assistance in blocking a new government tax on non-profit animal shelters and rescue groups in Missouri. The tax, from which shelters and rescues were exempt prior to 2010, requires animal shelters to pay the state the same fees and taxes as for-profit, large commercial breeders. The tax would cost non-profit animal shelters up to $2,500 per year. To listen to the oral argument, please click here.
