Bundy Trial Could Impact Public Lands

The Bundy Ranch standoff became one of the most high-profile land-use cases in modern Western history. It pitted cattle ranchers, anti-government protesters and militia members against the Bureau of Land Management.

For decades, the Bureau of Land Management ordered Cliven Bundy to remove his cattle from federal lands, and in 2014 the agency obtained a court order to seize his cattle as payment for more than $1 million in unpaid grazing fees.

The Bundys launched a social-media rallying cry. Hundreds of supporters, including members of several militia groups, converged on the Bundys' ranch.

For many Americans, images of the four-day standoff in a dusty wash below Interstate 15 northeast of Las Vegas were shocking. Protesters, ranchers and militia members took armed positions around federal law-enforcement officers, some lying prone on freeway overpasses and sighting down long rifles.

Federal agents abandoned the roundup, saying they were outgunned and in fear for their lives.

The standoff was hailed as a victory by militia members. Ammon and Ryan Bundy later cited their success at Bundy Ranch in the run-up to another protest of BLM policies, the siege of an Oregon wildlife refuge in 2016. An Oregon federal jury acquitted Ammon and Ryan Bundy and five others in October 2016.

I think there is way more to the story than the OP posted. Not what is said, but what was not said.

I looked at several of the stories in the Google search and many had the simple accusations and not the facts as the Judge saw them. Basically an overreach of the BLM. And not $1mm in fees-fines. Etc.

Lets hope it does rationalize land use.

Part of what's not said is that he viewed the public land his cattle grazed as belonging to the State and tried to make his grazing fee payments directly to the State. They could have just brokered the deal passing the money on to the Fed but instead refused payment.

Unfortunately, the Western States didn't get the same deal as rest of the States where Federal Land ownership is miniscule.
