Well, that didn’t take long.
Usually around these parts we wait a month or so for a judge to make a ruling after a hearing. Not so in the Colorado City/Hildale federal discrimination case. A few months back, attorneys for the towns dominated by followers of polygamous sect leader Warren Jeffs filed a motion asking the case be moved from Arizona to Utah. A hearing on that motion was held Nov. 30.
Totally ignoring the fact that it would be way easier for me to cover the case if it was moved to Utah, U.S. District Judge Russel Holland shot down that motion today — just over a week after the hearing.
For some background on the case, in which the U.S. Department of Justice alleges Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints officials discriminated against and intimidated non-members, click here.
