CASE ENTRY

Hohman v. Eadie

IRS agents order bank to turn over taxpayers’ financial records without naming the taxpayers (instead, agents identify account numbers)—so-called John Doe summonses, which are permissible as long as agents first obtain approval from a federal judge. Taxpayers: The agents did not get approval. Sixth Circuit: Because you’re an LLC, sovereign immunity means you can’t sue. You could’ve had you taken a different business form.
