EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - Oregon State Bar officials have dismissed complaints of misconduct against a Eugene attorney who urged Ammon Bundy supporters online to file public records requests with state and federal authorities.

The Register-Guard reports (https://bit.ly/29DcJRV ) that the bar’s assistant general counsel, Troy Wood, issued a letter Wednesday saying his office found that Attorney Mike Arnold hadn’t engaged in professional misconduct.

Three complaints from residents of New York, Massachusetts and North Carolina had been filed in April alleging Arnold’s call to action would harass government agencies who receive public records requests. Arnold had maintained he only sought help from Bundy supporters to gather information for his defense.

Arnold had been representing Bundy in the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge occupation case until he was replaced in May by Utah Attorney Morgan Philpot.
