Note, these are called benchmark cases for a reason. They all helped establish important doctrine however they may have been expanded, superseded, or limited by subsequent congressional or judicial action. I strongly recommend that you consult editorial materials (e.g. explanations in RIA or CCH, commentaries in tax journals, etc…) in order to determine the significance of the case today. ALL GROUP MEMBERS SHOULD HAVE A SPEAKING ROLE.
