FLDS Prophet Warren Jeffs is being served yet another summons to appear in court by one of his former followers. In 2002, Shem Fischer brought a lawsuit against the FLDS Church, several of its leaders, and a cabinetry firm owned by FLDS members, after he was discharged from his job for no longer adhering to the fundamentalist Mormon faith.
Fischer’s attorney’s have been attempting to serve Warren Jeffs with a summons to appear and answer the charges. This week, U.S. District Judge Dale A. Kimball ordered notices of service by publication to be published in three newspapers, including The Eldorado Success (see notice on Page 6), advising Jeffs that he has 20 days to respond to Fisher’s lawsuit. The notices will also appear in The Spectrum in St. George, Utah and The Cortez Journal in Cortez, Colorado.
Similar notices were previously published in two other civil lawsuits. So far, Warren Jeffs has responded to none of them.
