NRA Drops Lawsuit Against NY Attorney General, to Pursue Claims in Manhattan (Dreamstime)

The National Rifle Association on Friday voluntarily withdrew a federal lawsuit it filed against New York Attorney General Letitia James in the state capital of Albany, and said it will instead pursue the same claims in a state court in Manhattan.
James had sued the gun rights group last August, seeking its dissolution.
The NRA filed for bankruptcy protection in January in a bid to avoid her lawsuit, but a federal bankruptcy judge ruled last month that it did so improperly.
The attorney general's office did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
