Treasury, IRS Sued to Overturn Delay of Obamacare Employer Mandate

Just days into the Obamacare occupation and our government-run health insurance “market” is in complete chaos.

State Department Sued for Clinton Aide Huma Abedin's Agreement Records

The name Huma Abedin might be best known to you as the wife of disgraced former Congressman and former New York Mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner. But it is her relationship with Hillary Clinton and the U.S. State Department that is of interest to Judicial Watch. Oct 4, 2013 1:03 AM PT

Judicial Watch Considers Obamacare Challenge

How bad is Obamacare? In July, President Obama himself unilaterally rewrote the law. Why? Because businesses started cutting hours, slashing benefits and reducing staff to avoid paying a hefty $3,000 per-employee penalty/fine/tax--whatever you want to call it--mandated by Obamacare.

Judicial Watch Appeals to Supreme Court in bin Laden Death Photo Lawsuit

When Judicial Watch began the battle to obtain photos and videos of the raid that led to Osama bin Laden’s capture, killing, and burial, we promised not stop until we exhausted every single legal remedy available to us. Last stop: the United States Supreme Court. Aug 27, 2013 12:29 AM PT

Eric Holder's Travel Expenses Exceeded $4 Million in Four Years

With a struggling economy and government debt piling up, President Obama promised to look at the budget line by line. Well, I’ve got a few lines he can examine.

Judicial Watch continues its pursuit of records related to the burial of terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden. Jul 23, 2013 11:47 AM PT

Sheriff Refuses to Honor ICE Immigration Detainers

Cook County, in the typical Chicago political tradition, thinks it is above the law. And this administration refuses to take legal action against Obama’s hometown cronies to enforce the law. This case demonstrates that our immigration enforcement efforts lie in shambles. Cook County’s sanctuary policy is against the law, wasteful, and deadly dangerous. Jul 22, 2013 4:20 PM PT
