Jan 15 (Reuters) - New York state Attorney General Letitia James on Friday said in a statement that she would not allow the National Rifle Association to use its bankruptcy proceedings to evade her office's oversight.

“The NRA’s claimed financial status has finally met its moral status: bankrupt," James said in the statement. "While we review this filing, we will not allow the NRA to use this or any other tactic to evade accountability and my office’s oversight.”
