The Utah Attorney General's Office was successful in getting the federal fight for control of the polygamous sect property trust bounced back to Utah. Read my story about Friday's ruling by the U.S. 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver here.
What does this mean? Well, it's something of a setback for the FLDS side of things. Also, there will most likely another hearing before the Utah Supreme Court. (They declined make a decision on this issue last year. Read that story here.)
It'll be interesting to see what the Utah Supreme Court does. Either way, Friday's ruling will probably add a year to this case.
Meanwhile, on another United Effort Plan trust front, the AG's office hasn't yet filed any appeal to Judge Denise Lindberg's order to pay off some $5.5 million in debts owed to the the accountant appointed to run the trust.
