Judge bans conservative lawyer from joining Bundy 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 (http://bit.ly/1Vk90wP ) 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 others against him in Florida.

On Friday, Klayman said there has been no final resolution in his disciplinary proceedings, as he said in his court filings.

“We’re going to obey the judge’s order,” he said. “Whatever information she’d like is not a problem.”

Klayman is the founder of Washington-based public interest groups Judicial Watch and Freedom Watch and is known for his aggressive pursuit of litigation. His work is mostly in support of a wide range of conservative and libertarian issues.

Bundy is facing criminal charges stemming from the April 2014 armed standoff with law enforcement near his ranch in Bunkerville. He is currently represented by Las Vegas attorney Joel Hansen, who is active in the ultraconservative Independent American Party of Nevada.

Hansen filed court documents asking Navarro to let Klayman help with Bundy’s defense, saying Bundy “wants and needs” Klaymen to avoid harming his constitutional rights.

Klayman’s current disciplinary proceedings stem from three separate alleged conflicts of interest in litigation involving Judicial Watch. Klayman agreed to a public censure in the disciplinary case in June 2014.
