quotes with the word "ubstantial"
The city supported its decision to deny the applications with substantial evidence . . . From the time ATC filed its applications to the time the city denied them, the city continually expressed its concerns regarding the visual impact of the facilities. These concerns arose out of the city's duty to find that the facilities complied to the maximum extent feasible with the regulations of the land development code, including the requirement that major telecommunications facilities be minimally invasive. In response, ATC consistently refused to consider modifications that involved reduction in height or redesign of the towers. Based on this record, we find that the city's decision was authorized by the relevant regulations and was supported by a 'reasonable amount' of evidence in the record, i.e., more than a scintilla but not necessarily a preponderance. Accordingly, the city's decision was supported by 'substantial evidence.
There is a powerful case to be made that a retailer doing extensive business within a state has a sufficiently 'substantial nexus' to justify imposing some minor tax-collection duty, even if that business is done through mail or the Internet.
