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.

A Pennsylvania woman and her teen daughter are suing an Allentown-area amusement park, claiming the park's costumed ghouls were too scary.

According to news reports, Shannon Sacco and her daughter are seeking more than $150,000 in damages against Dorney Park, Wildwater Kingdom and its parent company, Cedar Fair, after the girl visited the amusement park's haunted attraction and suffered a fall when a costumed employee ran up behind her and shouted in her ear. The family alleges the girl asked the ghouls to leave her alone because she didn't want to be scared and further claims the companies were negligent in their operation of the attraction, in part for failing to inform the girl she could buy a glow-in-the-dark "No Boo" necklace to ward off employees in monster costumes.

The lawsuit claims the girl allegedly had to undergo medical treatment, which may continue in the future, and that she has been unable to carry on her usual activities or hold a job.
