WASHINGTON—Billionaire hedge-fund manager Ken Griffin sued the Internal Revenue Service and Treasury Department on Tuesday, seeking damages after disclosure of his tax records.

The news site published articles mentioning Mr. Griffin and using information from his tax records in April and July this year.
