FLDS appeals trust rulings to Utah Supreme Court

An appeal filed with the Utah Supreme Court says a district judge went too far when she stripped a polygamous sect’s charitable trust of its religious purpose and denied church members “an effective voice” in court proceedings.

In rulings in the United Effort Plan Trust case, 3rd District Judge Denise Lindberg has sanctioned “continued violations” of constitutional rights of thousands who belong to the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the appeal claims.
