In an article published by Law360 on August 5, 2016, Julian A. Fortuna provides insight on the recent revival of a pair of lawsuits brought by several conservative advocacy organizations accusing the IRS of targeting them for additional scrutiny. Mr. Fortuna stated that the decision is “a vindication of our clients' claims under the First and Fifth amendments of the U.S. Constitution.” The article also notes that the circuit affirmed the dismissal of the groups' claims that the IRS conducted unauthorized inspections of their tax return information, finding the allegations insufficient to support the statutory requirements.
