Breaking News: Ammon Bundy Files Petition to Transfer St. Luke’s Lawsuit to Federal Court

By • May 1, 2023

Ammon Bundy has filed a pro se petition on behalf of himself, Ammon Bundy for Governor, The People’s Rights Network, Diego Rodriguez, Freedom Man PAC, and Freedom Man Press LLC in the United States District Court for the District of Idaho today.

The purpose of the petition is to establish that the Federal court has jurisdiction and is the proper venue for the case. The petition states,

“Jurisdiction and Venue is proper before this Court pursuant to Title 28 U.S.C. Section 1441 et. seq.; Title 28 U.S.C. Section 1443 et. seq., in that this case involves Federal Civil Rights violations against Petitioners and also done under color of law; and Title 28 Section 1446. Venue is proper also pursuant to U.S.C. Title 28 Section 1391 et. seq.

Additional Jurisdiction and Venue for this action in that it involves a Federal Question, Title 28 U.S.C. Section 31. and Title 28 U.S.C. Sections 1343(3) and (4).

Furthermore, Jurisdiction and Venue is proper before this Court pursuant to 28 U.S.C. Section 1441 (b)(2) and 28 U.S.C. Section 1332, as this case involves controversies between citizens of different states, where the matter in controversy exceeds the sum or value of $75,000, exclusive of interest and costs.”

The petition lists complaints regarding the amount of documentation that has been served upon Bundy and Rodriguez. It also details what the petitioners call “heavy-handed tactics” used by Holland & Hart – the attorneys for St. Luke’s – as well as the Fourth District Ada County court.

“The heavy-handed tactics against pro se litigants are not just by the Respondent’s counsel but by the State Court as well, depriving Petitioners of meaningful and procedural due process under color of law. The State Case raises issues of Federal Constitutional magnitude that cannot be addressed in the State Court forum due to the current tactics by Respondents and the State Court itself.

Petitioner/Pro Se Litigants Ammon Bundy and Diego Rodriguez have and will continue to suffer the unlawful conduct of the Respondents and State Court until or unless this Court will remove the case from State Court and transfer to the United States District Court.”

The petition concludes with the prayer for relief from the Federal Court:

WHEREFORE Petitioners PETITION this Court for an ORDER TRANSFERRING the Idaho Civil Case, CASE NO. CV01-22-06789 be transferred to the jurisdiction of the United States District Court for The District of Idaho, as soon as possible that Petitioner may be heard and Federal questions addressed, as well as any other relief deemed just and proper under the circumstances.”


Idaho Dispatch reached out to Holland & Hart, the law firm representing St. Luke’s Hospital in the matter. No response has been received at press time.

  1. Always praying for God’s justice to prevail in these families lives. It’s criminal what St. Luke’s is doing to these innocent families.❤❤

  2. Oh Heavenly Father, hear my prayer for Ammon and Diego to receive the justice they deserve. In Jesus name, amen.

  3. This court case started as a child was taken from his loving Mother and Father. I met the mother before the incident. She is one of the most friendly and nice people I have met in my life. Have you ever met someone and thought to yourself wow their is something wonderful and amazing about that person. You come away from that person and just feel good. I’ve felt that about Diego and his daughter the Mother of the baby Cyrus. The Child that was taken could not have much better parents. Injustice was done based on a minimal amount of information and one missed appointment. One missed appointment that most of us would think was not a big deal and instead it turned into a gigantic fiasco blown way out of proportion. The child was taken away from breast feeding mother who put trust in medical professionals only to have that trust radically abused. This put the child at risk because the baby was struggling to transition off of breast milk.

    The system is supposed to protect children from abusive and/or highly neglectful parents. It wasn’t supposed to take away children from loving parents that were doing a good job other than their trust in a place that was supposed to be trustworthy. These parents showed they cared by going to a Doctor in the first place. The mother showed she was caring by trying to do everything she could to not have her young child taken away. If you watch the videos she tried finding any other way pleading over and over again for her baby not to be taken away. She was isolated and pushed and pushed until she reluctantly gave up the child with no other choice provided. She proved again the proof of a loving and caring parent.

    This happened in Idaho. This type of thing should not be happening in Idaho. Ammon got in trouble accused of slander for an injustice that did happen. It happened and it was abuse of the system. Did Ammon physically harm anyone? no. Has he become a political target? yes. Ammon is a passionate person that sees injustices and puts effort into trying to get reforms.

    This is Idaho. Idaho has good people we are better than this we can do better, we should do better, and we must do better.

    A message to Idaho leaders we need two reforms.

    1. Protection for caring and loving parents.

    2. Protection from legal system used as an overwhelming weapon used to silence people and destroy them. The people have the right to speak out on what concerns us. Its also our duty as citizens.

    Free speech is critical to a free society. It prevents build up of anger that leads to suffering. Free speech is venting and that helps reduce pressures that otherwise can build up when not allowed. For that reason free speech is essential for peace.

    1. Amen on all counts.

      The governor actively used this case to slander and persecute a political opponent who was pointing out his blatant abuses of power. Remember, the Idaho Constitution only gives the governor power under a State of Emergency for 90 days and then the Legislature must extend it. Little cancelled the session and that extension never happened lawfully.

  4. Pull St Luke’s non-profit status immediately. Disbar Erik Stidham. Question why Idaho’s governor and Lt governor aren’t protecting Idaho’s citizens rights, yet prefer to cower to the devil’s control.

    1. The governor was the one who instigated this. He hated Bundy because Bundy was exposing the Governor’s illegal controls during COVID and was the only opponent with a legitimate chance to unseat him given the number of contestants in the Primaries. (McGeachin was a great candidate but her votes were diluted by the other candidates. And let’s not forget that Little actively went after her as well for $20,000 to a staffer. Massive hypocrisy considering the **BILLIONS** in Federal COVID funds that Little refused to allow the Legislature to audit!)

  5. Why doesn’t Attorney General Labrador investigate this mess between Ammon Bundy and St. Luke’s? My own experiences with St. Luke’s have been deplorable and at times dangerous to my health. They certainly should be taxpayer defunded for the problems they had with COVID treatments.Mr Bundy deserves better from Idaho leaders that claim to have the public’s best interest at heart. This has gotten out of hand and needs to be stopped for the good of the people of Idaho.

  6. Whenever you “Register” anything with the government including babies using a birth certificate [through the hospital which turns it in to the County Clerk’s Office to be assigned a Cusip number] you turn over control! Yes, that is correct! You have released full ownership of your property! You have given the government the permission to take that property! When you register your child for school you give that institution authority over that child and they can seize that property. Words have meanings and historical meaning. Stop registering your property!

  7. Right on Ammon! You have to fight these ambulance chasers with any legal weapons you have. Perhaps then, they will realize that you have your Constitutional rights that they cannot trample!

  8. The Nazi occupation of Idaho
    A poem by Martin Niemoller:
    First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out–
    Because I was not a Socialist.
    Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out–
    Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
    Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out–
    Because I was not a Jew.
    Then they came for me–and there was no one left to speak for me.
    These are truly the days of “1984”. 2+2=5
    Say it out loud….

  9. Ammon Bundy is not only a God Directed, Hand Picked Gift from Our Heavenly Father, he is an Honest man that you can Trust. God Bless You Ammon Bundy for standing up and allowing God to use you to Expose This Corruption. All Glory Goes To You Heavenly Father!!!!!
