A lawsuit alleging that the IRS discriminates against pro-Israel groups will be allowed to move forward, a federal judge ruled this week in Washington, D.C.
The IRS has been fighting to quash the lawsuit filed in 2009 by pro-Israel group Z Street, claiming the court does not have jurisdiction to hear the matter.
However, Judge Ketanje Brown Jackson rejected the agency's request to dismiss the case on Wednesday and ordered the IRS to respond to Z Street's complaint within the next 30 days.
