NRA v. Ackerman, Texas

Ackerman’s Motion to Quash Third Party Subpoenas

February 7, 2020

Filing Summary

This brief contains Ackerman’s request that the Court quash the NRA’s third-party document subpoenas to a number of its current and former clients such as the Chickasaw Nation, INTEGRIS Health, Inc., Greater Oklahoma City Chamber of Commerce, Oklahoma Department of Tourism and Recreation, Oklahoma State University Foundation, Senior Star, Williams Energy Resources, LLC, and WPX Energy, Inc.

Key Points

  • Ackerman calls the subpoenas “harassing and seek[ing] information wholly irrelevant to the claims and defenses in the lawsuit. Stated differently, the NRA and its counsel have served these subpoenas for the sole purpose to harass [Ackerman’s] current and former clients, and disrupt their business relationships.” (p.2)
