LAS VEGAS (AP) — A lawyer says a Nevada rancher plans to appeal a federal judge’s order that he pay $587,000 and remove any livestock he has on federal lands by the end of the month.
Attorney Mark Pollot represents Wayne N. Hage, the son of cattleman and longtime Sagebrush Rebellion figure Wayne Hage.
Pollot says he’s working on an appeal of the order Chief U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro issued Monday.
It also calls for the son to show by mid-April that he has complied.
Wayne N. Hage tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal he doesn’t have livestock on the range in question. He declined to say if he could pay the judgment fees and penalties.
His father led a decades-long fight with the U.S. government over grazing and property rights. He died in 2006.
