Utah court to hear sect-property distribution case
SALT LAKE CITY -- The key players in a seven-year-old dispute over homes and property belonging to a polygamous sect led by Warren Jeffs on the Utah-Arizona border will be back in court Tuesday.
The hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. before 3rd District Judge Denise Lindberg in Salt Lake City.
It is the latest step in the process of coming up with a plan to redistribute property in Hildale, Utah, and Colorado City, Ariz. In November, the Utah Attorney General's office laid out options during a town hall with current and former members of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.
Attorneys from the Utah and Arizona attorney general's offices will be at hearing as well as the court-appointed manager of the trust that holds the properties.
