|CSC in ACLJ Lawsuit Against IRS||| Print ||
Dear Common Sense Members:
Common Sense Campaign is now a party in the Federal lawsuit being brought against the IRS.
The American Center for Law and Justice today (6/25/13) filed an amended lawsuit in federal court in Washington, D.C. - adding an additional 16 Tea Party and conservative organizations, including a pro-life group, to the complaint - bringing to 41 the total number of organizations represented in the court challenge. On May 29, 2013, the ACLJ filed the initial lawsuit on behalf of 25 organizations arguing top Obama Administration officials - including those at the Internal Revenue Service - violated the constitutional rights of the groups by secretly targeting these organizations because of their political beliefs.
The ACLJ has heard from nearly 120,000 Americans calling on President Obama and members of Congress to end the IRS abuse.
Led by Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow, the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ), focusing on constitutional law, is based in Washington, D.C.
