NRA Referrals and NRA-Supported Litigation

Monday, June 24, 2013

Referrals

The NRA maintains a list of attorneys who have identified themselves to us as being willing to consider cases involving NRA members.  If a referral is given, the member must negotiate fees and arrangements with the attorney directly.  Further, by providing referrals the NRA is not endorsing or recommending any attorney on the list for any purpose—the attorneys on the list have asked to be placed on our list and are not systematically vetted by the NRA.

Supported Litigation: How the NRA Accepts Cases

The NRA cannot generally insert itself into litigation when it is not a party.  For the NRA to “get involved,” we must be invited by a party or by the court.  Please feel free to let us know about cases that may be of interest to the NRA, but do not contact us to “get involved” in cases to which you are not a party.

What Does It Cost?

NRA assistance, if any, is determined on a case-by-case basis. 

How Does the NRA Choose Cases?

The NRA generally assists in cases that affect the Second Amendment civil liberties or civil rights of large numbers of people, rather than those involving a dispute between individual parties. The basic questions we ask when reviewing a potential case are: (1) Is this a significant Second Amendment civil liberties or civil rights issue or a vital but derivative civil liberties or civil rights issue? (2) What effect will this case have on people other than the applicant? (3) Do we have the necessary resources to take this case?

Why the NRA Turns Down Some Cases

Unfortunately, there are many cases in which the NRA is simply unable to assist. We receive thousands of requests for help each year. We regret that we cannot provide assistance in many cases even if they fall within the guidelines discussed above. 

Important Note About Deadlines

All legal claims have time deadlines. The deadlines may be different depending on the nature of the issue and the parties involved. For some kinds of civil cases, you may need to file a claim with a government agency before you can sue, and these agencies have their own time deadlines. 

If you do not comply with the applicable deadlines, you may be legally barred from pursuing your claim in court. Contacting the NRA to describe your problem does not mean that the NRA represents you, and will not stop the statute of limitations from running. The NRA cannot give you advice about the deadlines that apply to your case. To protect your rights, please consult an attorney promptly to find out what deadlines may apply to your case.
