New York Attorney General Investigation

Court Decision on NRA’s Motion to Dismiss NYAG Complaint

March 2, 2022

Filing Summary

The Court’s decision allowed 15 of the 18 causes of action alleged by the NYAG in her Complaint to proceed. The NRA, along with individual defendants Wayne LaPierre and John Frazer, had attempted to have large parts of the case dismissed.

The judge’s decision opens with an acknowledgement that “the Attorney General’s allegations in this case, if proven, tell a grim story of greed, self-dealing, and lax financial oversight at the highest levels of the National Rifle Association.”
