General Discussion #80 – Utah Supreme Court rocks FLDS

SALT LAKE CITY (Reuters) –
Utah’s highest court, in a blow to the polygamous sect headed by convicted child rapist Warren Jeffs, refused on Tuesday to allow the church to challenge state control of a communal land trust once run by its jailed leader.
The decision by Utah’s Supreme Court upholds its own 2010 ruling that the three years the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints waited to challenge the state takeover was too long.
It also bars the case from being heard by other state judges.”
