WASHINGTON, D.C. - It's Cyber Monday, but a big loss in court today for online retailers.

The United States Supreme Court rejected appeals from overstock.com and Amazon.  They wanted to keep states from taxing their merchandise.  Without comment, the justices upheld a lower court's ruling favoring New York's right to tax them.

U.S. Senator Dick Durbin (D) says their actions should prompt Congress to pass a law that helps even the playing field between online retailers and brick and mortar stores who do have to pay taxes on all of their sales.
