A federal judge has dismissed the National Rifle Association’s petition for bankruptcy, saying it was filed in “bad faith” in order to avoid litigation by the New York Attorney General Letitia James’ Office, which has sued to dissolve the NRA for allegedly misusing charitable funds. Tuesday’s decision means the NRA will not have bankruptcy protections, which it has said are needed to protect against a “barrage of litigation” the organization is facing. It also means that the NRA cannot reorganize in the state of Texas without approval from the New York Attorney General’s Office, James said Tuesday.
