Judge Says Lawyer Not Allowed To Join Cliven Bundy's Defense

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Nevada judge has refused to let a nationally known conservative lawyer join Cliven Bundy's defense team because of ongoing disciplinary proceedings against him in Washington, D.C.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro wrote in a three-page order that she didn't think Larry Klayman has been candid about the outcome of the disciplinary proceedings.

Klayman disclosed in court documents that no disciplinary action had been taken and the proceedings would likely soon be resolved in his favor, which Navarro said was "misleading and incomplete."

Navarro ruled that Klayman can reapply to represent Bundy if he submits documents related to those proceedings and proceedings against him in Florida.

Bundy is facing criminal charges stemming from the April 2014 armed standoff with law enforcement near his ranch in Bunkerville.
