PostSubject: Superb: Judge dismisses federal charges against Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, who calls himself Ďa political prisonerí   Tue Jan 09, 2018 6:00 pm

A federal judge on Monday dismissed criminal charges against Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, who rose to national prominence during his armed standoff with government authorities in 2014 as he challenged their authority over federal land.



The dismissal was the latest defeat for government officials prosecuting Bundy and his relatives in connection with a pair of showdowns with federal authorities, first on Bundyís home turf and then, two years later, when his sons led an armed takeover of an Oregon wildlife refuge.

U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro dismissed the case against the rancher, two of his sons and a Montana militiaman, just three weeks after she†declared a mistrial in the case against Bundy. Navarro had†ruled that government lawyers suppressed key evidence that would have been favorable to the defendantsí case ó including suppression of evidence from FBI surveillance cameras recording the Bundy family home and the presence of federal snipers†around the property ahead of the standoff, among other omissions.

Her†decision Monday freed Bundy and marked a significant victory for the rancher and his supporters. As part of the dispute over the federal governmentís land-use policies in the West, the Bundys have argued that the government has been unfairly trampling their rights, although the mistrial and dismissal in Bundyís case instead focused on how prosecutors handled evidence.
