Judge Dismisses NRA’s Claims That It’s the Victim of NY AG ‘Witch Hunt’
I was going to write some snarky paragraph, but I can’t stop laughing at this courtroom butt-kicking long enough.
In a 14-page ruling, State Supreme Court Justice Joel M. Cohen said the NRA had failed to put forward “any viable legal claims that the Attorney General’s investigation was unconstitutionally retaliatory or selective.”
“The investigation followed reports of serious misconduct and it uncovered additional evidence that, at a bare minimum, undermines any suggestion that was a mere pretext to penalize the NRA for its constitutionally protected activities,” Cohen wrote.
James celebrated the judge’s decision on social media. “Once again, a court has rejected the @NRA’s attempts to dismiss our lawsuit against the NRA for its years of fraud and abuse,” James tweeted.
