Judge Dismisses NRA Bankruptcy Bid

HeadlineMay 12, 2021

A federal judge dismissed the National Rifle Association’s bid to declare bankruptcy Tuesday, meaning a lawsuit filed last year by New York’s attorney general can go ahead. The judge says the group filed “in bad faith.” The NRA was hoping to use bankruptcy as a strategy to evade the potential dissolution of the group by New York officials, who are accusing the NRA and its CEO Wayne LaPierre of financial misconduct. New York Attorney General Letitia James tweeted, “The @NRA does not get to dictate if and where it will answer for its actions, and our case will continue in New York court. No one is above the law.”
