NEW YORK (AP) — The National Rifle Association has dropped a lawsuit accusing New York's attorney general of suing the gun rights group last year out of political hostility, opting to challenge her through counterclaims in the same court where her case is playing out.

NRA lawyers filed court papers Friday voluntarily dismissing their lawsuit against state Attorney General Letitia James in federal court in Albany.

The NRA's law firm said in a statement that dropping the lawsuit was a “significant and important” procedural step that will ensure the organization's claims against James are heard in the same state court in Manhattan that will hear her lawsuit.

1. The National Rifle Assassination Club will not win this fight in court. Like so many autocrats they

misjudged their power and their boundaries. New York has them coming and going.

2. I thought the NRA was bankrupt.

Anyway, I wonder how they're paying for all this.

3. "Strategically" bankrupt...

...they filed for bankruptcy in order to legally reorganize in TX to avoid scrutiny by NY, under which state they are currently organized. It was recognized as a sham and the attempt was denied.
