Lawdragon: Representing a “Cult” Leader: Dan Cogdell on the Waco Trial

Lawdragon: Representing a “Cult” Leader: Dan Cogdell on the Waco Trial

Following the 1993 siege at the Branch Davidian compound, Dan Cogdell found himself representing a former cult member, Clive Doyle, who was facing federal murder charges. Although initially hesitant to take the case, once Dan spoke with Mr. Doyle, it was clear to him that the government had grossly overstepped its authority, leading to the death of 76 sect members, which included 25 children, and four federal agents.   

“The Branch Davidian case was a very polarizing event. When the government engages in that sort of misconduct, and when it’s played out, when it’s livestreamed, it leaves a mark. In politics today, there’s never been a bigger cleavage, a bigger distance between the right and the left,” David told Lawdragon when reflecting on the potential repeat of another Waco-like event.
