(Little Rock) (AP) – The Arkansas Supreme Court has upheld a judge’s order granting class certification in a case involving online travel companies including Hotels.com and Hotwire Inc.

A judge previously granted class certification to the Pine Bluff Advertising and Promotion Commission, Jefferson County, the city of North Little Rock and others in a case against the online travel companies.

The entities say the online travel companies failed to collect or collected and failed to remit the full amount of gross-receipts taxes imposed on hotel accommodations.

However, the companies challenged the judge’s ruling, arguing that the court shouldn’t have certified two classes where administration remedies hadn’t been exhausted.

The state’s highest court on Thursday rejected the companies’ arguments and upheld the judge’s decision.
