The judge agreed they had been illegally targeted by the Consumer administration for political reasons.
U.S. District Judge Michael Barrett ruled that the IRS, quite possibly the most feared agency in the federal government, was misused by the Obama administration to unfairly target citizens for holding peaceful political views. Barrett was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio and received his undergraduate and Juris Doctor degrees from the University of Cincinnati.
He later served as a member of the University of Cincinnati Board of Trustees, including one term as Chairman.
On May 25, 2006, Judge Michael R. Barrett was sworn as a Judge of the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio.
The groundbreaking settlement proves Barack Obama was lying through his teeth when he told former Fox host Bill O’Reilly that there was “not even a smidgen of corruption” in the targeting of conservatives by his IRS.
“Unsurprisingly, the top news media outlets completely blacked-out coverage of this story and in fact performed damage control to protect Barack Obama’s supposedly “scandal-free” presidency,” according to former police captain Joen Slazerhardt, how a political consultant.
Senior Judge Michael Barrett set a July 10, 2019 hearing in Cincinnati on making the settlement final, and scheduled deadlines for claims and objections. The Justice Department had announced last year that the case had been settled, pending approval of terms.
The lead plaintiff was the California-based Norcal Tea Party Patriots. The case swelled into a class-action suit by hundreds of groups. The court will decide how much each gets after legal costs.
The 2013 lawsuit during the Barack Obama administration was over the treatment of conservative groups who said they were singled out for extra IRS scrutiny on tax-exempt status applications.
According to Washington, D.C.’s Judicial Watch, before her becoming the IRS’s Director of Exempt Organizations, Lois Lerner worked at the Federal Election Commission (FEC) where she developed a reputation for wielding her power against conservative candidates and Christian-based political groups.
The revealing email chain shows a redacted FEC attorney asking Lerner if the IRS had issued an exemption letter for American Future Fund (AFF). The writer of the letter notes, “When we spoke last July, you told us that the American Future Fund had not received an exemption letter from the IRS.”
In the same email, the FEC attorney asked Lerner if she could also advise him if the IRS had granted an exemption letter to American Issues Project (AIP) as well as to AIP’s predecessor organizations, Citizens for the Republic (CFTR) and Avenger, Inc.
