South Mountain Creamery gets its money back from the IRS, and more

Maryland dairy farmer Randy Sowers has won back $29,500 the IRS seized four years ago in a money-laundering investigation, and his case could pay dividends for hundreds of other small businesses, his lawyer says. 

"It's a victory not just for Randy, but also for others, so he's really a trail-blazer here," says Paul Kamenar, one of two lawyers that pressed Sowers' case with the Justice Department and got Sowers two congressional hearings.

The nonprofit Institute for Justice worked the case for years. It announced the victory on Thursday.
