The IRS spent Friday getting slapped hard by the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, according to multiple media sources, for its targeting of two conservative citizens’ groups, Linchpins of Liberty and True the Vote, and for “unequal treatment” towards the organizations.

On background in the case the legalese seems like serious courtroom drama unfolding between the so-called “Tea Party” organizations and the IRS and decided by the court.
Journalist Sarah Westwood, interviewed Walter Olson, described as being a senior fellow at the Cato Institute Center for Constitutional Studies, who said the court’s response to the IRS agency’s argument was “damaging.”

The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, according to the information posted by Westwood in the story, is considered by many to be “the second most powerful court in the country,” and thus the D.C. Court of Appeals’ reversal Friday of the two lower court decisions to actually dismiss the separate lawsuits against the government agency by the victimized citizens involved with the organizations Linchpins of Liberty and True the Vote maybe came as a severe and very public slap.

The Wall Street Journal had also posted another document pertaining to the IRS targeting of conservative citizens.
