Ryan Bundy is not a lawyer. Before he was arrested for his role in the 2014 armed standoff with federal officials trying to impound his father’s trespassing cattle, Bundy was a general contractor with a 20-year history of run-ins with the law. Yet he represented himself during his federal court trial in November, sometimes filing handwritten legal documents filled with conspiracy theories, and he managed to fluster seasoned federal prosecutors in the courtroom. His amateur legal work ultimately helped lead to the dismissal of all the charges against him, his brother Ammon, and his father, the rancher Cliven Bundy.
