Lobbyists sue Obama administration after being booted from boards

Lobbyists who were booted from federal advisory committees by the Obama administration are suing the government to reverse the ban on their service.

In a 16-page complaint filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, six lobbyists argue the administrationís ban against lobbyists on advisory committees violates the First Amendment.

The lobbyists challenging the ban were either serving or seeking to serve on one of the Industry Trade Advisory Committees (ITAC) that are jointly managed by the Commerce Department and the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative (USTR).

Lawyers working with the lobbyists said the ban flies in the face of the Constitution.
