Federal judge dismisses criminal charges against Ammon Bundy's lawyer

A federal judge Wednesday dismissed all criminal charges pending against Marcus Mumford, Ammon Bundy's lawyer, at the prosecution's request.

In a three-sentence order, U.S. District John C. Coughenour granted prosecutors' motion to dismiss two charges against Mumford without prejudice, meaning the government could bring them back in the future.

Mumford's lawyer, Michael Levine, had argued repeatedly that the deputy U.S. marshals engaged in "outrageous'' misconduct and lacked authority to wrestle Mumford to the ground and stun him with a Taser gun while he was arguing on behalf of Bundy in a federal courtroom last fall.

The scuffle occurred after Bundy was acquitted of all charges on Oct. 27 at the end of a five-week trial over the armed takeover of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge last winter.
