Storied gun group has been accused of financial fraud.
The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook
The National Rifle Association next week will begin a series of court hearings regarding its bankruptcy filing, a critical juncture for the longtime civil rights group as it faces accusations of financial fraud and mismanagement.
Half a dozen hearings will play out virtually in a Dallas court, with U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Harlin Hale set to decide whether the group's bankruptcy process can play out as normal or if, given the fraud allegations leveled against it, the NRA should be subject to an independent review as part of that process.
The New York Attorney General's office last year announced its intent to dissolve the NRA amid allegations of financial abuse on the part of its leadership.
The New York A.G.'s office is seeking to appoint a trustee to the NRA to carry out investigations while the company proceeds with its bankruptcy claim.
The group is headquartered in Fairfax, Va., but is seeking to move to Texas for its reportedly friendlier business climate.
