MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF MOTION TO INTERVENE
MOTION TO VACATE REFORMED TRUST BY CORPORATION OF PRESIDENT OF FLDS AND LEROY JEFFS AS EXECUTOR OF ESTATE OF RULON JEFFS
MEMORANDUM IN SUPPORT OF MOTION TO VACATE REFORMED TRUST
UPDATE 12-01-09: This is a comment I posted on FLDS Legal Perspective a couple of days ago:
<blockquote>Rulon died intestate and his estate was opened in 2002. There was also a determination of heirship at that time. LeRoy Jeffs was qualified and appointed independent administrator of the estate. Letters of Administration for a formal administration were issues to LeRoy in 2002. Apparently the estate was never distributed or closed. (That would be fascinating)
it would be interesting to see the inventories and annual accounts LeRoy has filed since 2002.
I believe LeRoy has served time in jail since 2002, a factor which could subject him to removal as administrator. He has also been removed as a trustee of UEP for breach of fiduciary duty since 2002 – a factor that could almost certainly disqualify him from continuing to serve as a representative of Rulons estate.
I think the theory is that Rulon (or his estate) was the sole beneficiary of the trust when it was reformed — the court should have not reformed the trust but allowed it to fail, in which case the remainder interest reverts to Rulon (or his estate). There is definitely some funky alter ego stuff going on here …like Rulon as the sole beneficiary would hold the reversion interest in trust for the FLDS corporation.
