The Washington Post recently published an article featuring the work of Graves Garrett LLC and quoting attorney Dane Martin on the significance of a preliminary approval for settlement in the NorCal Tea Party Patriots, et al v IRS.

Graves Garrett represents more than 400 entities in a class-action lawsuit against the IRS arising from its targeting of Tea Party cases.

Final approval of the settlement is scheduled for this summer.

Martin and Graves Garrett partner Eddie Greim have worked on the case, which is now in its fifth year. The Tea Party groups filed suit against the IRS in 2013 asserting that it targeted certain applicants for tax-exempt status on the basis of their ideological and political viewpoints.

At Graves Garrett, Martin has experience in a broad range of business litigation matters, representing businesses and individuals throughout the country. He has substantial experience defending class actions and other complex litigations against companies nationwide. In addition, Martin is also able to call on his experience in prosecuting class actions, such as in the NorCal lawsuit. He also represents clients in matters including breach of contract disputes, constitutional law, product liability, breach of fiduciary duty, regulatory compliance and investigations, securities law, and consumer protection law.

Before entering private practice, Martin served as a judicial law clerk for the Honorable Patricia Breckenridge of the Supreme Court of Missouri.
