There is one less dormant commerce clause challenge to the ability of a state to restrict out of state retailers after the case in Illinois was dismissed. Judge John Lee of the Northern District of Illinois signed the order of dismissal.
This case had been slated to start as a trial in September after a remand from the 7th Circuit for additional fact-finding. The Indiana retailer who brought the case (and several others) has apparently recently sold the business. The State had moved to dismiss the complaint based upon this recent important information.
