Fairfax, Va. – The United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, Eastern Division has conclusively held that the National Rifle Association has the right to recover attorneys’ fees in the case of National Rifle Association v. City of Chicago and National Rifle Association v. Village of Oak Park, in which the NRA was a prevailing party. This District Court's decision, which held that the NRA is entitled to over $1.3 million in fees, follows a similar ruling by the U.S. Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals.And this is where Chicago and Oak Park's tax dollars are going after defending their civil rights violations. They will continue to waste money by keeping the laws as strict as they 'think' they can get away with.
And they'll continue to be wrong.
