And that we -- they're gonna be filing.
Likely federal they'll be federal court.
Probably is a class action but -- that number of plaintiffs together parties together.
Either towards the end of this week or next week you're looking at three challenges the first focuses on groups that we represented.
That still are not approved one -- Albuquerque Tea Party New Mexico the dates back to December of 2009.
They were denied but they haven't been approved.
So those kind of groups it's it's first to get a not not monetary damages but equitable relief they need to give -- its bid to -- the statutes provide for that.
And that ended the courts can't intervene at that point as well for the other groups.
-- that were also looking at not just equitable but monetary damages as well.
For those who may have already been approved but weren't approved until well after retired two and a half three years some that were approved just last couple of months.

You're right Jordan their their right to buy beer in their right to -- -- and you're quite accurate to say they have every right to -- I -- but but.
The government it is is is an uphill task suing IRS and almost impossible one because the IRS can apologize to you.
If you owe back taxes -- I've I've tried it you -- apologize to that so so having said that in no other herculean task you're up against what will be the differentiator here what will -- Your argument stick and this -- Class -- I don't -- succeed.

It wasn't just since that is we have the letters that we provide those to -- -- everybody's shows over and see those now.
That that the extent of the wrongdoing edge and the fact that the iris -- admitted it apologized.
But but it's kind of gone -- way -- they said it was it you had the acting commissioner say in his opinion it was an illegal but at constant he may be thinking criminal.
And that's its own separate issue that's prosecutors that's not.
Our suit -- this business department constitutional ansari -- at the Justice Department actually help your case by you might launch a criminal investigation brochures that that certainly -- the fact that that was attorney general holder's first statement that you know we're gonna launch a criminal investigation.
That heightens the level it's never it's it's very easy -- -- sense feel that the government if you know it it's it's it's almost immune to most part with sovereign immunity from.
Monetary damages and that's because all of us as taxpayers have to pay it.
