I retain an interest in Marcus Mumford, for the most part because when I attended the Oregon standoff trial, Mumford's behavior was appalling, disgusting, outrageous, but also, let's face it, fascinating; you had to see it to believe it. The case against Mumford, brought by the Oregon court, continues and I follow it, albeit sporadically. The latest:

Not surprisingly, Mumpoot has been in trouble in other courts as well. From Weaver's Response:
The District of Utah has sanctioned Mr. Mumford and found him to have a “demonstrated inability to manage deadlines” and to “repeated[ly] fail to comply with court orders.” Utah Republican Party v. Herbert, No. 2:14-CV-00876-DN-DBP, 2015 WL 6394534, at *7 (D. Utah Oct. 22, 2015)
The District of Utah has further sanctioned Mr. Mumford for frivolous practice, held him in contempt, and barred him from appearing in an action until he satisfied court orders. See Garth O. Green Enterprises, Inc. v. Standard Plumbing Supply, Inc., No. 2:15-CV-00556-DN-EJF, 2017 WL 1843097, at *5 (D. Utah May 5, 2017).
The Tenth Circuit too has noted that Mr. Mumford’s conduct “evinces a pattern and practice of disregard for this Court’s rules, orders and deadlines.” Conti Decl., Ex. 3. The Tenth Circuit admonished Mr. Mumford for his practice being “inconsistent with the standards of practice required of attorneys admitted to appear before this Court.”
Mumford's woes are not restricted to his courtroom travails. His wife, Michelle Quist, has divorced him.

My Thursday @TheSaltLakeTribune column: Girl power in 2018.
“I started the year married, at home with my seven children, in line for an appointment to a judicial committee and gearing up for a successful private law practice working for myself.
I ended the year divorced, juggling seven children, with my young children in full-day preschool, working full-time, no judicial committee, no self-employment, dream job and political aspirations slowly slipping away. There’s nothing like seeing your life flash in front of you when little of it matches up with what you thought you wanted.”
