Update expected on polygamous board
First Published Jun 13 2014 08:55 am • Last Updated Jun 13 2014 08:55 am
A Utah judge is set to discuss the progress of forming a board that would oversee the redistribution of about 750 homes and parcels of property in Warren Jeffs’ polygamous sect on the Utah-Arizona border.
Judge Denise Lindberg has scheduled a hearing Friday morning in Salt Lake City. She’s not expected to announce the board members, but rather give an update on the process.
In February, she picked 13 finalists from a field of 24.
Lindberg has the option to keep the trust in the court’s hands if she doesn’t think she can find board members that can act independently and in the best interests of everyone.
The homes have been tied up in the courts since it was seized by Utah in 2005 over allegations of mismanagement.
