Shakeup in Short Creek
The following documents are:
1) Temporary Restraining Order issued by Judge Kennedy, restraining the FLDS from interfering with Richard Holm’s use and enjoyment of UEP property for which he holds an Occupancy Agreement;
2) Complaint filed on behalf of Richard Holm against the FLDS and requesting a restraining order and injunction against the FLDS thugs who took over his property and changed the locks and barricaded the property against Richard; and
3) Exhibits attached to Richard Holm’s complaint — pay particular attention to the letter from Brock Belknap (Washington County Attorney) to Jonathan Roundy, FLDS Police Chief, as this letter directs local FLDS law enforcement to enforce the UEP Occupancy Agreements according to their terms and give them the same effect as a lease or deed.
We will post a thorough commentary on these documents and the recent shake-up in Short Creek a little later this evening, but for now we wanted to get these documents posted so you can read from the primary sources yourselves.
