The National Rifle Association, based in Fairfax, VA, sued Ackerman McQueen in federal court, demanding its former public relations firm remove from its website references of the gun lobby and its “failed” online TV station NRATV, reports the Courthouse News Service.

The report also stated that “the lawsuit is the latest legal bout between the NRA and its estranged longtime public relations firm after the two parted ways in June, triggering litigation in Virginia state court over unfair billing practices.

“According to the new lawsuit, Ackerman McQueen continued to prominently refer to the NRA on its website after the termination of the services contract in order to mislead the public about their relationship.

“The NRA claims the numerous references and images of it featured on Ackerman McQueen’s website are unauthorized and likely to cause confusion.“Those references are unauthorized and falsely suggest that the NRA continues to be an AMc client and endorser of AMc’s services in connection with NRATV when, in fact, the NRA terminated NRATV because of its failure to achieve the objectives for which it was begun,” the lawsuit states.”
