Radzinschi/ALM New York Attorney General Letitia James has moved to dismiss the National Rifle Association’s counterclaims in her lawsuit to dissolve the gun-rights advocacy group, which was filed in August in Manhattan Supreme Court. The motion, filed Thursday, comes after a Texas bankruptcy judge in May dismissed the NRA’s Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition, filed as part of the NRA’s effort to leave New York and James’ regulation. Earlier this month, the organization dropped a countersuit filed in the Northern District of Texas in August, the same day James filed her dissolution suit in Manhattan.
