Report Filed Asking Judge to Hold Off Appointing UEP Trustees

ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) — A report has been filed asking a Utah judge to hold off on appointing new trustees to oversee the United Effort Plan Trust.

The trust is the financial arm of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. A judge is expected consider potential trustees on Thursday.

The report filed yesterday objects to nearly every person mentioned in the high-profile case.

Bruce Wilson, a special fiduciary for the U-E-P, said that every party who has nominated trustees in this case is viewed as a dissident, apostate and/or anti-polygamy crusader.

Utah Assistant Attorney General Tim Bodily agrees. He says the court needs to be careful in making sure that they will appoint people that will represent the broad interest of the trust, and that’s why they’re asking the court to take more time.

Wilson says the U-E-P owns property worth more than 32 (M)million dollars in Washington County, and property in Mohave County, Arizona worth 59 (M)million dollars.
