Jay Dobyns Loses On Appeal

After a ruling published yesterday by the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit, former ATF agent Jay “Bird” Dobyns’ seems to have finally lost his tedious, self-aggrandizing,12-year-long legal battle with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

Dobyns infiltrated the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club in Arizona for the Bureau from late 2001 until July 2003. The investigation, later dubbed “Operation Black Biscuit,” was remarkable for its corruption and cynicism. The operation became a means to promote an ATF agent, who happened to be Dobyns, as a national hero. By January 2005, The Arizona Republic was wondering in print whether Operation Black Biscuit was “an undercover success that took dangerous gangsters off the streets, an undercover sting that veered an out of control or both?”


Dobyns became a hero in three books: Running With The Devil by Kerrie Droban; Angels of Death by Julian Sher and William Marsden; and Dobyns own account titled No Angel. He was, and still is, also frequently presented as a hero on numerous news and reality television programs. After the investigation ended, Dobyns claimed to be the object of multiple, lurid threats in retaliation for his, putatively superb, work in Black Biscuit. (See “The Agent Who Became Lost.”

More recently Dobyns has promoted himself as a martyr to the ATF and as an authority on motorcycle clubs. He testified, for example, as a prosecution expert during the recent Mongol Nation trial.

Dobyns complained that the Bureau failed “to appropriately respond to…security threats from 2004 to 2007, and to provide adequate support for concealing Dobyns’ and his family’s identity during an emergency relocation” He sought compensation and “in 2007, Dobyns and ATF settled their dispute. ATF agreed to pay Dobyns a lump-sum and to ‘comply with all laws regarding or otherwise affecting the Employee’s employment by the Agency.’”


“In August 2008, an act of arson substantially damaged Dobyns’ home, but his family was able to escape without injury. Following the arson, ATF, allegedly in violation of the agreement, delayed its initial response, persisted in pursuing Dobyns as a primary suspect, even after evidence established his innocence, and mishandled the manner in which information was disseminated to ATF supervisors.”
Dobyns alleged that the Bureau’s actions before and after the arson breached the 2007 agreement and filed suit against the Bureau in October 2008. After many twists and turns the suit went to trial 2013. The result and aftermath of that trial have been widely misrepresented by Dobyns and most journalists as a victory for Dobyns It was not. The trial court found that the ATF had not breached the 2007 agreement. The court did rule that the Bureau had violated an implied duty to “ensure the safety of Agent Dobyns and his family” and, “secondarily, that ATF employees would not discriminate against Agent Dobyns.”

“The Claims Court went on to hold that, although Dobyns did not show economic damages arising from this breach, Dobyns was entitled to emotional distress damages. The Claims Court awarded damages in the amount of $173,000.”

After the government appealed that ruling, the lower court judge, Francis M. Allegra, vacated his ruling and the case twisted and turned some more until; yesterday when a three judge panel ruled that the government had not breached the 2007 agreement in any way; that Dobyns was not entitled to damages for emotional distress; and that Allegra had not erred when he ruled that the ATF did not owe Dobyns economic damages.

    Jay Dobyns: The Undercover Agent Who Survived the Hells Angels
    Jay Dobyns spent more than two years infiltrating the Hells Angels Motorcycle Club, only to be betrayed by the same agency he worked for: the BAFTE.

    Jay Dobyns says, “My appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court was denied in February of 2020. Sixteen years after it all started, it was finally over. I had lost. I failed in my attempt to create change.” Here’s a link, to the chronology of legal events, leading up to the denial of Dobyns’ petition on February 24, 2020.

    The reality that will never be said is:
    1. Jay learned to do this from his mentors. It was nothing for Good ‘Ol Pat Kelly to get a supposed death threat against his family, and then try to force ATF to buy him a new house for his “protection”. That’s where Jay got the idea.
    2. You know if a person is on the porch trying to light their glass dick(father or daughter) there can be a house fire.
    3. Wonder if anyone in the Dobyns household has ever had a problem with dope ?

    The above are my opinions as guaranteed by the constitution.

    With police-state mob agents, it’s always about economic issues while they say it’s only about some type of bull-shit service to the public.

    For them to truly be in service to the public, the best thing they could do FOR the public, would be to resign, without pensions.

    If you stir shit,expect to get some on your shoes. Just another fuckin weasel.

  20. jrino Says:

    So the ATF hires agent “TURD” and he snorts and breaks the law to further his delusion of bad ass biker, to the point that they get virtually nothing on the HA. The ATF tries to flush the toilet on him but the “TURD” won’t go away, money is not enough for the “TURD”. Now he’s flushed! I saw this jerk on TV and he’s still wearing red and white do rags. That’s delusional!
