FILE - In this Feb. 6, 2017, file photo, supporters and critics of defenders of Cliven Bundy, who was on trial over an armed standoff with federal prosecutors gather at the federal courthouse in Las Vegas. Todd Engel, who has served more than four years in federal custody for his part in the armed 2014 standoff against federal agents in support of states rights advocate Bundy, filed suit against the U.S. government and prosecutors for damages in a civil rights and conspiracy complaint filed Sept. 7, 2021 in U.S. District court in Las Vegas. A federal court judge in 2018 found flagrant prosecutorial misconduct and dismissed criminal charges against Bundy and more than a dozen other defendants, including Engel. Engel is seeking $100 million for damages. (AP Photo/John Locher, File) The Associated Press
