    Jury finds NRA and Wayne LaPierre liable in civil corruption trial

    Wayne LaPierre diverted millions of dollars away from the National Rifle Association to live luxuriously, while the gun rights group failed to properly manage its finances, a jury found Friday.

    The verdict comes after five days of deliberations and ends a seven-week long civil corruption trial in New York City.

    The case against the NRA was brought on by a lawsuit filed in 2020 by New York Attorney General Letitia James, who accused LaPierre and other current and former executives of flouting state laws and internal policies to enrich themselves.

    The other defendants were John Frazer, the NRA’s corporate secretary and general counsel, and Wilson “Woody” Phillips, its former treasurer and chief financial officer.

    The jury ruled largely in favor of James, finding that the National Rifle Association failed to properly run its nonprofit and its assets at any time between March 20, 2014 and May 2, 2022.

    Jurors also determined that LaPierre, Phillips and Frazer all violated their statutory obligation to discharge the duties of their position in good faith.

    My first thought as well.

    Another suit without a plaintiff. At least this one says they're to repay the NRA (so the next director has something to embezzle) instead of just giving Albany all that cash to play with.
