Ammon Bundy and Diego Rodriguez seemed to be testing the limits of the judicial system, as they continued to ignore a judge’s order and didn’t show up in court for the second time in a lawsuit brought by St. Luke’s Health System.

District Judge Lynn Norton gave Bundy, who is running as an independent for governor in the Nov. 8 general election, and Rodriguez another opportunity to comply.

The Idaho Capital Sun reports, she found the men in contempt of court but explained she wanted to “try lesser sanctions” before considering more punitive measures.

Norton said Bundy must sit for a deposition to answer the questions by Sept. 30, and Rodriguez must sit for a deposition by Oct. 7, because it appears he is in Florida.

She set a timeline for St. Luke’s and the defendants to follow. If Bundy and Rodriguez don’t follow the timeline or appear for their depositions, they could face additional punishment.
