Ammon Bundy questions authority of feds to prosecute him


PORTLAND, Ore. — Lawyers for Ammon Bundy revealed plans to contest the authority of the federal government to prosecute their client for the takeover of a national wildlife refuge in Oregon.

Attorney Lissa Casey says in court papers that a forthcoming motion to dismiss the case will challenge the federal government's assertion that it has ownership of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge.

"The federal government relinquished the land when it was previously deeded and homesteaded, thus relinquishing jurisdiction," Casey wrote.
