LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Latest on a court order for a Nevada rancher whose father led a decades-long fight with the government over grazing and property rights to pay $587,000 and remove livestock from federal land (all times local):

10:45 p.m.

A lawyer says a Nevada rancher plans to appeal a federal judge’s order that he pay $587,000 and remove any livestock he has on federal lands by the end of the month.

Attorney Mark Pollot represents Wayne N. Hage, the son of cattleman and longtime Sagebrush Rebellion figure Wayne Hage.

Pollot says he’s working on an appeal of the order Chief U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro issued Monday.

It also calls for the son to show by mid-April that he has complied.

Wayne N. Hage tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal (https://bit.ly/2m04XcV) he doesn’t have livestock on the range in question. He declined to say if he could pay the judgment fees and penalties.

His father led a decades-long fight with the U.S. government over grazing and property rights. He died in 2006.

A Nevada rancher whose father led a decades-long fight with the U.S. government over grazing and property rights has been ordered to pay $587,000 and remove any livestock he has on federal lands by the end of the month.

Wayne N. Hage is the son of cattleman and longtime Sagebrush Rebellion figure Wayne Hage, who died in 2006.

Chief U.S. District Judge Gloria Navarro in Las Vegas says he also has to show by mid-April that he has complied.

The Hage family battle over property in Nye County preceded the fight involving federal agencies and rancher Cliven Bundy, and an armed standoff in April 2014 near Bunkerville.
