Alliance Defending Freedom v. Internal Revenue Service
U.S. District Courts
Alliance Defending Freedom has filed a federal lawsuit against the Internal Revenue Service for failing to produce records on its secret deal with an activist group to investigate churches. Federal law requires the tax agency to produce the records that ADF requested under the Freedom of Information Act in July 2014, but the IRS missed its legally required deadline and has continued to stonewall the request. ADF is requesting the same information already provided to Freedom From Religion Foundation, which struck a deal with the IRS to end the lawsuit Freedom From Religion Foundation v. Koskinen.
