    A judge's decision not to let federal prosecutors reopen the criminal case against Cliven Bundy, his sons and supporters in a 2014 armed standoff with government agents could amount to the final act in the case, a lawyer for the Nevada rancher and states' rights activist said Friday. "It's the final nail in the coffin, and completely expected," attorney Bret Whipple said of the ruling in the criminal case that was filed in 2016 against 19 defendants and collapsed last December in a mistrial due to "flagrant misconduct" by prosecutors. Chief U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro said again in a...

    "Yes. The news is out that the government has filed to dismiss the charges against the remaining defendants and our two sons who still have charges pending against them will be truly free men. You may also have read that the government has filed a Motion for the Judge to reconsider the case against Cliven, Ammon, Ryan and Ryan Payne. The government still wants another bite of the apple. I don't know what the judge will do--she's the only one who knows that--but it's clear that the government wants another swing at my family. God granted His blessing and protection...

    Federal prosecutors in Nevada are asking a federal judge to reconsider her dismissal of charges against Cliven Bundy, his sons Ammon and Ryan Bundy and supporter Ryan Payne in their 2014 armed standoff over cattle grazing, arguing that her ruling was erroneous "unwarranted and unjust." They said US District Judge Gloria M. Navarro failed to consider a less drastic remedy for the evidence violations she found. In a motion filed Wednesday, the prosecutors also reiterated their unsuccessful argument that the evidence they failed to share too late wouldn't have been admissible anyway because they didn't believe the defendants could argue...

    Lifelong Southern Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, recently cleared of federal charges and freed from jail after nearly two years, has turned his sights on state and county government. In a lawsuit filed Thursday in Clark County District Court, Bundy claimed that former resident Barack Obama’s late 2016 establishment of Gold Butte National Monument, which occurred while the rancher was in federal custody, was “as illegal as it is unlawful” and would preclude him from continuing to function on his land and destroy his livelihood. ... “Recognizing that the land is not owned by the United States of America, (Bundy) has...

    Federal judge Gloria Navarro slammed the FBI and Justice Department on Monday, Jan. 8, for “outrageous” abuses and “flagrant misconduct” in the prosecution of Cliven Bundy and sons, the Nevada ranchers who spurred a high-profile standoff with the FBI and Bureau of Land Management in 2014. Navarro condemned the "grossly shocking” withholding of evidence from defense counsel in a case that could have landed the Bundys in prison for the rest of their lives. Navarro, who had declared a mistrial last month, dismissed all charges against the Bundys. Navarro was especially riled because the FBI spent three years covering up...

    Unsealed court documents detail how the team of prosecutors tasked with convicting Cliven Bundy and his sons of crimes relating to a 2014 armed standoff failed to turn over potential exculpatory evidence to the court, The Oregonian reports. The Bundys’ case ended in a mistrial Dec. 20 after Judge Gloria Navarro ruled that prosecutors violated the civil rights of the defendants by withholding evidence supporting the Bundys’ case. Navarro is considering dismissing the case “with prejudice” and blocking prosecutors from retrying the case. Her decision will come Jan. 8, according to The New York Times. “There were approximately 3,000 pages...

    In a July 5th email, Ryan Payne's lawyers asked prosecutors for copies of all threat assessments prepared before the April 2014 standoff between Cliven Bundy's supporters and federal officers attempting to impound the Bundy family cattle for years of failing to pay grazing fees and fines. Prosecutors handling the Nevada standoff case characterized defendants' continued push for threat assessments as another in their "long list of frivolous and vexatious pleadings." Prosecutor's didn't turn over the multiple threat assessments to Payne and his co-defendants, Nevada cattleman Cliven Bundy an his two sons, Ammon and Ryan Bundy, until the four were in...

    Attorney General Jeff Sessions stepped into the Bundy prosecution after Wednesday’s mistrial, ordering a third-party examination of the case in light of the latest government snafu. “The attorney general takes this issue very seriously and has personally directed that an expert in the [Justice Department’s] discovery obligations be deployed to examine the case and advise as to the next steps,” said Ian D. Prior, the department’s principal deputy director of public affairs, in a late Wednesday statement. The decision to intervene came after Chief U.S. District Court Judge Gloria Navarro declared a mistrial over the government’s “willful failure to disclose...
