  1. “Prompt reporting and the legal duty to report allegations of abuse were calculatingly sacrificed to the greater goal of maximizing the likelihood of financial recovery,” the motion states. “Ms. Wall must now live with the results of these arrangements.”
    ===================================================
    Ouch! This says it best.

  2. Not really, Alin, but you keep right on dreaming…

  3. I read part of it and got a headache. But I was baffled by this: “Throughout the vast majority of this time period, Mr. Steed had no knowledge of the alleged charges no any hint that there was any allegations of wrongdoing on his part.”

    Setting aside the fact that anyone who has finished law school could submit a brief with such bad grammar, why exactly did Mr. Steed think Warren Jeffs was on trial?

    Whether Elissa Wall must “live with the results of these arrangements” is immaterial. She isn’t the plaintiff; the state of Utah is.

  4. Whether Elissa Wall must “live with the results of these arrangements” is immaterial. She isn’t the plaintiff; the state of Utah is.
    ====================================================
    Aye you are right. Utah has to live with her bad decision making.

  5. Can’t imagine how Elissa ever made a bad decision after she was raped repeatedly by her husband. geez.

    I didn’t realize young female rape victims were supposed to “please the rapist” by not reporting it and going after the group that initiated it and supported it.

  6. Utah will be just fine. It will be the FLDS that will live with her courageous decision for hopefully until the end of time.

    We could be so lucky.

  7. I think, Greetings, that the lawyer is trying to claim that during the marriage itself Allen didn’t know that Elissa felt that she’d been raped.

  8. “Aye you are right. Utah has to live with her bad decision making.”

    Yeah, God forbid that a 14 year old girl NOT be responsible for being forced into marriage and sexual relations by people who are supposed to protect her. Blame the victim, blame the victim, blame the victim!

  9. Apparently the victim decided to maximize financial gain at the risk of reporting allegations of abuse promptly.

  10. Are you nuts Alin? She decided to MAXIMIZE financial gain? Have you EVER been around a RAPE VICTIM? I assure you the last thing they are thinking of is financial gain.

    Quit attacking the character of a young woman that managed to live thru a horrible experience as a child when she should have lived thru a happy marital experience as an adult.

    And you don’t get money when you report a crime. How stupid.

    And how awful as a human being that financial gain is all you can think of when discussing a “rape victim”.

    They deserve your respect for living thru it, not your scorn in how you THINK they handled it.

  11. And you don’t get money when you report a crime. How stupid.
    =================================================
    Of course you don’t. That is the thrust of the filing, she delayed reporting to enhance her lawsuit potential.
    =================================================
    They deserve your respect for living thru it, not your scorn in how you THINK they handled it.
    =================================================
    She doesn’t have my scorn. She has my skepticism however. I’m wary of a person who was so traumatized by her partner only 5 years older then her that she went and had an affair and got pregnant by someone 9 years older then her.

  12. It is so insulting that you would state that about a rape victim, I have to wonder about your eternal soul.

    I have never even heard of someone that was raped delaying reporting it so they could get more money.

    The victims I have known in that position were more concerned for an “eye for an eye” and hunnybunny, it didn’t involve money.

  13. Yes, after she had sex with the man she later married, she got into a time machine, went back in time three-four years to before her marriage, changed an answer of “No, I’m not ready” to an answer of “Hello, Sailor”. Isn’t it grand how you can bend logic if you really want to believe that it’s somehow OK on some planet or other to force a 14 year old into having sex with her cousin?

  14. Lots of people delay reporting rape because they believe or are told that no one will take them seriously, and that people will use even sex that happens years later as proof that they consented…..oh, wait.

  15. I have never even heard of someone that was raped delaying reporting it so they could get more money.
    =====================================================
    I don’t think she did, at least not deliberately, but yes I could see how the attorneys whom advice she relied upon, and who was due a percentage of the lawsuit potential, could delay things.

  16. I think Elissa spent more time trying to acclimate herself to the outside world, have her baby and maintain her marriage before she EVER thought about filing a lawsuit.

    And I might remind you that she is asking for money to help other women & children leave. Whatever amount she MIGHT end up getting will NEVER REPLACE her lost innocence and the betrayal of her heart & soul in being forced to marry & have sex over and over again with a man that she despised.
