Jury Ends Day of Deliberations in Bundy Ranch Standoff Case

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A jury has ended a second full day of deliberations with no verdict in the federal trial of six men who brought assault-style weapons to a standoff that stopped government agents from rounding up cattle near Cliven Bundy’s ranch in April 2014.

A court official said Tuesday the U.S. District Court jury will return to work Wednesday.

The jury deliberated about three hours Thursday before returning for a full day Monday.

Trial took two months, and each defendant faces 10 charges including threatening and assaulting a federal officer, extortion, obstruction, weapon violations and conspiracy.

The standoff near Bunkerville ended when the federal Bureau of Land Management gave up the roundup.

That was seen as a victory by states’ rights advocates in an ongoing battle over federal control of vast rangelands in the West.
