NRA v. Ackerman, Virginia

Ackerman’s Motion to Stay Proceedings

February 18, 2020

Filing Summary

Ackerman asks the Court to stay the Virginia state court litigation pending the resolution of the parallel case in federal court in Texas. The motion notes the NRA refused to consent to the motion.  

Key Points

  • Ackerman speculates that the “NRA prefers to litigate its disputes against [Ackerman] in two courts, which thus forces [Ackerman] to double its litigation expenses.  This is a transparent ploy to coerce the capitulation of [Ackerman] under pressure caused by the heavy cost of litigation.”  (p.2)
