Oregon Standoff/Ammon Bundy

  • Eugene Register Guard: Politician credits lawyer in standoff Nevada’s Michele Fiore says Eugene’s Mike Arnold “truly is a hero”
  • Washington Post – Getting to Hallelujah: The frantic final hours of the Oregon refuge occupation
  • The Atlantic – “The Nobility of Good Lawyers With Bad Clients.” The armed standoff in Burns, Oregon, is a perfect case study for why all defendants need excellent representation—and why the current criminal-justice state is no panacea
  • Mike at his snarkiest using his First Amendment rights to protect a client – Daily Astorian: Bundy lawyers fire back at Marquis: Arnold called Marquis’ complaint with the state bar “frivolous.” “Only a narcissist could possibly conceive that two lawyers from Eugene could influence the jury pool in a case this big with this much coverage and national interest,” he said in an email. “We just don’t exude that sort of influence. Our constitutionally protected words are a drop in the bucket compared to the negative publicity against Ammon.”
  • OPB/NPR: “Oregon State Bar Dismisses Final Complaint Against Former Bundy Attorney.” This case has been discussed as a prelude for attorneys becoming increasingly brave that their free speech rights and advocacy duties preempt “white shoed” and archaic lawyer publicity rules.
