Judge Nap: IRS nor their employees can be sued thanks to CongressSubmitted by JO4RP on Tue, 05/14/2013 - 06:55
Just caught the end of the interview, Judge Nap was on Fox & Friends and dropped that bombshell. Said the only remedy is to relieve them from their duties - i.e., transfer to another government job.
Found this in IRS site - haven't read thoroughly nor have I verified it's the most current. Reading this crap gives me a headache, sorry.
Doctrine of Sovereign Immunity
1. The traditional rule is that the government or sovereign cannot be sued without its consent. This doctrine prevented citizens from bringing actions against the government to redress wrongs allegedly committed against them by the government.
2. The government retains sovereign immunity in order to protect the Treasury and its discretionary governmental functions.
3. Waiver of sovereign immunity and consent to be sued can only be granted by an act of Congress. In giving its consent, Congress may impose such conditions and restrictions as it deems proper. Schillinger v. United States, 155 U.S. 163 (1894).
