First Amendment Rights: Good News from the IRS on Donor Privacy

In this era of increased harassment and persecution of people on the basis of political viewpoints and First Amendment expression, there’s actually good news to report.

In fact, that positive development comes from none other than the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), which few people typically consider a font of good news.

Specifically, the IRS just announced a proposed rule to stop requiring nonprofit organizations to file what’s known as a Form 990 Schedule B, which exposes sensitive donor information not only to the federal government and potential rogues like former IRS official Lois Lerner, but also people who seek to access and use that information to target people on the basis of political belief.

As we at CFIF have long asserted, this welcome move will help protect the…[more]

An app developer is suing Kim Kardashian, seeking a nine figure resolution, after claiming the reality star pushed him out of a deal for animated emojis and GIFs of the Kardsashian clan.

David Liebensohn is suing Kardashian for at least $100 million for breach of contract and fraud. According to news reports, Liebensohn and his business partners were contacted by Kardashian to develop animated emojis of Kardashian, called "Kimojis." Liebensohn claims Kardashian agreed to give him and his partners a 60 percent cut, but that she insisted on filing the trademark paperwork for "Kimoji." Shortly after filing for the trademark, Kardashian backed out of the deal, claiming one of Liebensohn's partners had shared some of her personal information. Liebensohn says Kardashian knew about the alleged sharing of the personal information before they struck the deal and that she later simply used it as an excuse to back out.

Kardashian's lawyer, Marty Singer, told news organizations that the "lawsuit filed against Kim Kardashian is ridiculous and absurd. The parties entered into a binding settlement agreement in 2014 in which Kim gave up multi-million dollar claims against Mr. Liebensohn and his partners. Mr. Liebensohn waited more than 4 years to claim the agreement wasn't binding on him. Kim commenced arbitration in December 2018, and after Mr. Liebensohn was unsuccessful in stopping the arbitration he filed this meritless lawsuit. We feel confident we will get the case dismissed."
