NRA takes aim

The National Rifle Association has dropped its relationship with King & Spalding because the Atlanta-based law firm dropped a case from congressional Republicans. Soon after K&S announced it would not be handling the defense of the Defense of Marriage Act, the NRA announced King & Spalding would no longer be handling its important cases. “We believe King & Spalding’s decision is indefensible and raises serious concerns about its ability to be a reliable and effective advocate for any client facing potentially controversial litigation,” the NRA stated in a letter.
