The National Organization for Marriage said the $50,000 settlement the IRS paid the group for releasing its private tax information was a start, but it still wants the Justice Department to grant immunity to the key gay rights activist involved in the release.
A federal court has ordered the IRS to pay $50,000 to the National Organization for Marriage due to the leak of confidential tax documents, but the organization has called for further investigation to determine the extent of the wrongdoing.
The Supreme Court has declined to halt a federal judge's order that overturns a voter-passed marriage amendment in Oregon.
A federal judge ruled Wednesday that a national group cannot defend Oregon's ban on same-sex marriage after the state attorney general refused to do so, paving the way for a ruling on the voter-approved ban that could come at any time.
A different kind of "jamboree" awaits the 1,400 delegates arriving Wednesday at the Boy Scouts of America's national conference in Grapevine, Texas.
After more than two decades of legal battles, rallies, protests and campaigns, proponents of gay marriage say they are increasingly confident as they await their day in court.
Supporters of traditional marriage scored a crucial victory Thursday as the California Supreme Court ruled that sponsors of Proposition 8 and other ballot measures are entitled to defend the initiatives in court when state leaders refuse to do so.
NOM chairman John Eastman said Wednesday that the Justice Department is stonewalling attempts to figure out whether the Internal Revenue Service leak, which improperly included a list of the group's donors, was intentional.
"We asked the Department of Justice to grant him immunity and he had asked the Department of Justice to grant him immunity and the Department of Justice refused," Mr. Eastman told The Washington Times. "So why would you not grant immunity if you have already determined not to prosecute the guy?"
