The state of Michigan is being sued by out-of-state retailers and Michigan consumers over the state law that bars them from transacting business across state lines. The suit alleges that the law violates the U.S. Constitution's Commerce Clause that gives the federal government, not state governments, the right to regulate interstate commerce and prohibits the states from discriminating against out-of-state businesses.
