Bundy brothers balk at attending US court hearing in Vegas
December 9, 2016
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Two sons of Nevada cattleman Cliven Bundy refused to attend, and several co-defendants shouted an oath of defiance at the end of a federal court hearing to schedule trials for 17 men accused of conspiring to take up arms against federal agents in April 2014.
A U.S. magistrate judge decided not to order marshals to bring Ammon and Ryan Bundy to court by force, so the two Bundy sons who were acquitted of federal charges in an Oregon wildlife refuge occupation remained in a nearby holding cell.
They were provided a speaker to hear the Las Vegas court proceedings.
