A Texas judge is throwing out the National Rifle Association’s bankruptcy filing, saying that the case was filed in "bad faith" in an effort to avoid litigation in New York, according to Law 360.
Judge Harlin Hale’s decision to throw out the case came after New York Attorney General Letitia James and others questioned the legitimacy of the bankruptcy filing.
The NRA filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection on January 15 after James filed a lawsuit to dissolve the gun rights organization. New York prosecutors have accused the group’s leaders of corruption.
