"D.C. Circuit Revives Conservatives' IRS Case," Courthouse News
In an article published by Courthouse News on August 9, 2016, Julian A. Fortuna provides insight on the recent lawsuits brought by several conservative advocacy organizations accusing the IRS of targeting them for additional scrutiny. The groups, who filed as charitable or educational 501(c)(3) organizations or 501(c)(4) social welfare groups, say the IRS delayed and singled out their applications starting in early 2010 based on their conservative or anti-Obama administration names. The lawsuits were originally dismissed but the D.C. Circuit reversed the dismissal of the lawsuits for injunctive and declaratory relief. "We are looking forward to vigorously litigating those claims and obtaining appropriate relief for our clients upon the court ordered remand of the case," said Mr. Fortuna.
