Douglas Varley Weighs in on Lawsuit Filed Against the NRA

Date: 8/6/2020

The attorney general of New York called for the dissolution of the National Rifle Association in a lawsuit filed Thursday.

The suit, filed by Attorney General Letitia James, accuses top NRA leaders of using the gun rights group’s funds for personal gain and engaging in a pattern of fraud to conceal their actions.

. . .

Attorney Doug Varley, an expert in non-profit law, said the lawsuit is an example of oversight of big non-profits shifting from the federal government to state regulators.

“I think this action by the New York attorney general is really a dramatic confirmation that the states are taking regulation very seriously,” he said. “And in particular that they’re investing the resources to take on major institutions, not just the small nonprofits.”

Doug Varley is a Member of the Exempt Organizations Group at Caplin & Drysdale.
