After an investigation into alleged corruption and mishandling of funds, Attorney General Letitia James filed a lawsuit Thursday to dissolve the National Rifle Association. James said the 18-month-long investigation concluded the group is “fraught with fraud and abuse.”

The suit claims the leaders of the gun-rights group misused funds for personal gain and the mishandling of money accounted for a $64 million loss over three years.

According to James. the group created contracts with friends and family and wrote contracts with former employees for ensured loyalty.

James sued as the NRA is registered in New York and is in her jurisdiction — it was filed with the New York Supreme Court. The AG said the group is “a breeding ground for greed, abuse, and brazen illegality.”

Further, James is seeking the court to require the dissolving of the organization and require each of the current and former executives to pay full restitution. Wayne LaPierre and three other executives would never be allowed to serve on the board of a New York charity if the suit wins, as reported by CNBC.

The suit is civil but if the AG finds criminal activity, “we will refer it to the Manhattan district attorney,” she said.

The NRA has yet to make a comment on the lawsuit.

Forget becoming Mayor of a town, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is now the owner of a town.  Cuban reportedly purchased the entire town of Mustang, Texas. The town is virtually abandoned with no current residents, “and it’s been several years since the last two businesses, Wispers Cabaret strip club and Lion’s Den adult bookstore, operated” reports NBC News.

In a brief email explaining the purchase to NBC News on Friday, Cuban wrote “did it to help out a friend. No plans yet!” The town of Mustang is roughly 65 miles south of American Airlines Center, the home of the Dallas Mavericks.

According to Mike Turner, president of Dallas real estate firm J. Elmer Turner, the town had been for sale on the market about four years, listed after the principal owner Marty Price became ill and decided to sell.

Price was an attorney who died this past August; a devoted basketball fan with Mavericks floor seats. “Mark Cuban stepped up, and it was a natural for him to buy it” Turner told NBC News. “With his resources and imagination, I’m sure there are endless possibilities.”

Turner did not reveal the final sales price but admitted it closed last month for less than the $4 million asking price. Jerry Newsom, chief of the volunteer fire department in the neighboring town of Angus, told NBC Dallas-Fort Worth “we’re excited to have him as our neighbor here, and we’re excited for the growth and the potential it has.”
