I don't think anyone has ever accused him of anything resembling such...

Shouldn't it be the lawyer's job to know if they're qualified?

Yup. I predict 90% insanity and the rest mixed with regrets and a very rude awakening.

He's a member of the Oregon bar, it'll basically be a formality for him to be admitted before the federal district court the trying the case.  You pay the $100 or so fee and they swear you in.  Usually they do mass swearing-ins several times a year, I don't know if he'd have to wait for the next one or of they'd do one specially for him due to factors of time.

Patch is still a thing? I thought it went out of business years ago because the writers were paid squat and they couldn't keep any.

ifarkthereforiam: I can't wait for the trials to start. It'll be pure comedy gold.


No, it unfortunately won't.

Court: "How do you plea?"
Dildonian: "I reject your authority to prosecute me."
Court: "I'll enter a guilty plea."
4 years of nonsensical motions, so absurd that they deserve no attention
Court: "Guilty."
Us: Oh, I thought those dildo guys were sentenced years ago.

Wait, he's not having trouble finding someone to represent him who agrees with his warped sense of reality and can clearly convince a jury to believe in it too, is he?

Someone recently asked on his Facebook if Philpot was still running for a congressional seat because Bundy's case is going to be hugely time-consuming.  Philpot quickly responded "You betcha!"  How long before Philpot's out to "focus on the campaign" and yet another attorney is brought to start over with Ammon??

Philpot? More like CrackPot.

Ammon's lawyer not admitted to practice in Federal Court?  Comedy Gold

This. Season one was great and had an excellent ending, and while season two hasn't been terribly interesting so far it's laying groundwork for season three, which will pay off in the long run. I wonder if any new characters will appear or if they're going to stick with the current cast. You know, excluding stuff like this, it's to be expected, really.

Maybe he just figured out that "using Facebook and social media to crowdsource research" might not be the best legal strategy.

Hmm.That's a conflicting one.
On one hand, if you don't tell him - it would be funny.
On the other, if you don't tell him - It might set the case up for a mistrial, so he'd walk.

If it's one of the old ones that still does full-auto then technically it is a machine gun, so there. :P
