New York Attorney General Investigation

NRA’s Reply to OAG’s Opposition to NRA Motion re: North Deposition

August 19, 2019

Filing Summary

This filing is the NRA’s reply to the OAG’s opposition brief concerning the issue of the NRA’s participation in the deposition of former NRA Board President Oliver North.  It argues that the OAG is engaged in a fishing expedition and provides legal arguments for why the NRA should be permitted to participate in North’s deposition.

Key Points

  • The NRA claims that the Attorney General is on a “fishing expedition” to attack the NRA for political reasons. (Pg. 5.)
  • The NRA states that its “charitable-compliance house is in order, and it does not fear a reasonable regulatory inquiry.” (Pg. 6.)
  • The NRA argues that “any corporation should be entitled to attend and lodge objections at an examination of its director.” (Pg. 7.)
  • The NRA claims North is “adverse” to the NRA and has “contractual loyalties to Ackerman that superseded his loyalties to the NRA. (Pg. 8.)
