Pro-marriage organization files suit against IRS

Catholic World News - October 15, 2013

The National Organization for Marriage (NOM), which supports legislative efforts to define marriage as the union of a man and a woman, has filed suit against the Internal Revenue Service over the release of confidential donor data.

“In March 2012, individuals employed by the IRS ... disclosed NOM’s confidential ... 2008 IRS Form 990, Schedule B, which contains the names, home addresses, and contribution amounts of NOM's 2008 donors, to one or more third parties, including NOM’s ideological opponent, the Human Rights Campaign,” according to the lawsuit.

“NOM's confidential return information was subsequently published on the Internet by third parties, including HRC and the Huffington Post,” the suit continued, “making it available to millions of people. These disclosures are part of a deliberate attempt to chill the First Amendment activity of NOM, its donors, and others who associate with NOM.”
