20-year legal dispute between the United States Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and cattle rancher Cliven Bundy in southeastern Nevada over unpaid grazing fees eventually developed into an armed confrontation between protesters and law enforcement. The dispute began in 1993 when Bundy refused to pay bills to the US government for his cattle grazing on federal lands near Bunkerville, Nevada. Bundy was eventually prohibited from grazing his cattle on the land by an order issued in 1998 by the United States District Court for the District of Nevada in United States v. Bundy. After years of repeated violations of multiple court orders, in early April 2014 the BLM began rounding up Bundy's cattle that were trespassing on the land, confronted by protesters and armed supporters of Bundy

Bundy lost on all his arguments regarding states' rights and jurisdictional dispute in the United States v. Bundy cases.[8] Bundy had argued that the US District Court for the District of Nevada lacked jurisdiction because the United States does not own the public lands in question.[8] The court ruled ?the public lands in Nevada are the property of the United States because the United States has held title to those public lands since 1848, when Mexico ceded the land to the United States.?[8] Bundy further argued that the Disclaimer Clause of the Nevada Constitution carries no legal force;[8] that the Property Clause of the United States Constitution applies only to federal lands outside the borders of states;[8] that the United States' exercise of ownership over federal lands violates the Equal Footing Doctrine; that the United States based its authority
