OREGON STANDOFF: BUNDY LAWYER TACKLED, TASED ARRESTED, NOW FIGHTING DISBARMENT
It was dramatic enough in the courtroom in Portland when all seven defendants accused of being the 'leaders' of the Oregon Standoff protest were found not guilty on October 27, 2016.
But there was more to come as Ammon Bundy's lawyer, Marcus Mumford, argued for Bundy to be released. The federal government countered about a "retainer" on him for the charges in Nevada but couldn't produce any document stating that when asked by Mumford.
They claimed it was "in the office" or something to that effect.
A group of federal marshals descended on Mumford, tackling, tasing him and taking him into custody.
Criminal charges were filed against Mumford, but later dropped.
Now the senior federal judge in Oregon wants Mumford disbarred from practice in Oregon's federal courts.
