[Planet News] NAR/TRA Lawsuit: ATF 900 page gorilla morphs into King Kong

WASHINGTON, District of Columbia USA -- Responding at the eleventh hour
to a mandate established by U.S. District Court Judge Reggie B. Walton,
attorneys for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives
(BATFE) today filed with the court the administrative record of the
testing results they conducted in conjunction with the Air Force
Research Laboratory in support of the government's case that ammonium

The lawsuit, brought by the National Association of Rocketry (NAR) and
Tripoli Rocketry Association (TRA) challenges those test results. In a
hearing earlier this month, Judge Walton specified the time line that
the parties to the lawsuit would follow with regard to the submission of
supporting documentation, the procedural responses to those submissions

have filed the documentation supporting their position that resulted
from the testing they conducted.
