Judge Rules NRA Lawsuit Against Los Angeles Over Contractor Disclosure Law Can Proceed

by WHITNEY TIPTON, Daily Caller  |  Published on August 14, 2019

A federal judge Monday ruled that a lawsuit against Los Angeles by the National Rifle Association (NRA) over the city’s contractor disclosure law can proceed.

The NRA filed the lawsuit in April to challenge the city’s new law that requires contractors to disclose contracts or sponsorship with the gun-rights organization, City News Service reported.

U.S. District Judge Stephen Wilson rejected the city’s argument that contractors involved with the NRA does not represent “expressive” speech, and therefore not protected by the First Amendment as NRA attorneys contend.

“That is rejected,” Wilson said at the hearing Monday, according to Bloomberg. “It is expressive, so there is a First Amendment issue.”
