This is odd...

Recommended Posts

Does anybody else find it odd that Google is suing the U.S. government for not properly exploring their options when it comes to bidding for email contracts? Either Google is afraid of competition or they just feel like suing the U.S. government for the heck of it.

it looks like the lawsuit is saying that basically the govt favored microsoft by stipulating that all bids include a microsoft program. sounds like typical "some guys with suits splitting up our money" stuff. so now google wants in on the cash cow.

Taking only one bid is not allowing competition.

Isn't the government pretty much exempt from lawsuits?

No

The IRS is the government and people sue them all the time and often win.

With a little research you will find the IRS is a private corporation.

With a little more, you'll see they are a part of the Department of Treasury.

31 U.S.C is the designated US code section for Tax Regulations and Administration of The U.S. Treasury Departments Operations.

A close review of 31 U.S.C will disclose that the Internal Revenue Service, a Private Corporation, is not shown as a division, bureau or any part of the U.S. Treasury Department. All of this can be looked up at firstgov.com. 31 U.S.C chapter 3 does not list the IRS as an agency or any part of the Treasury Department. 31 U.S.C subtitle VI section 9101 does not show the IRS as a Government Owned Corporation under "Government Corporations". 31 U.S.C subtitle I Chapter 9 section 901 does not list the IRS as an authorized agency.

I am not going to go into this any farther on the forum. If anyone wants to know more or debate the issue you can pm me.

Uh, why would they be? The IRS is the government and people sue them all the time and often win.

In the United States, the federal government has sovereign immunity and may not be sued unless it has waived its immunity or consented to suit. The United States has waived sovereign immunity to a limited extent, mainly through the Federal Tort Claims Act, which waives the immunity if a tortious act of a federal employee causes damage, and the Tucker Act, which waives the immunity over claims arising out of contracts to which the federal government is a party.
