Judicial Watch asked a federal court to unseal the depositions of Lois Lerner -- the former director of the Exempt Organizations Unit of the IRS -- and of her top aide Holly Paz. Both played key roles in the targeting of conservative nonprofit groups opposed to Obama policies in the run up to the 2012 presidential election.

Lois Lerner was actively engaged in the attempted cover-up of IRS misconduct. Judicial Watch revealed that both Lerner and Paz knew the agency was specifically targeting “Tea Party” and other conservative organizations two full years before disclosing it to Congress and the public. They also knew donor lists of tax-exempt organizations were being used to target those donors for audits.

Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton: "In a republic, citizens have a right to know what its government is up to, especially when officials abuse the powers entrusted to them. This effort to seal Lois Lerner and Holly Paz depositions for all time is affront to the rule of law and government accountability."
