Lerner seeks dismissal of lawsuit against her personally

Freedomworks is suing the IRS in its official capacity and Lerner personally for her alleged efforts to target and harass the group, among other conservative groups, in the IRS scandal. Lerner has now filed motions requesting she be dismissed from the suit for lack of personal jurisdiction (in Texas), plus failure to piece federal immunity and lack of alleged violations of well-established Constitutional rights.

The interesting part is the personal jurisdiction argument. If I had to guess, I'd think Lerner is trying to get the case removed to the DC circuit, which Obaam has recently packed full of favorable judges.
