Though not Mormon, I fully support this action.

I don't think the mall or church itself should simply not stand up for itself because it is a religious organization.

They are right that much negative attention was drawn and people may very well be more scared to go there now.

I support the Mormon church in protecting what is theirs, even their financial assets.

No problem whatsoever.

The will probably get the 4000 feet part of what they want, but (this is just a guess), he doesn't look like he has much money.

Yep. Sue the sick and penniless man. That'll show him. He doesn't need treatment. He doesn't need compassion. He needs to be sued. Criminal prosecution isn't nearly enough. /sarcasm off/

cjb, my thoughts exactly, where will the money come from. at most the restraining order, and will it really stop him. it seems like he needs a padded cell most.

Totally inspired move.

I agree with Wookie. What do they want...their shopping cart back?

Yep, you're right. Don't do anything and let the man kill defenseless citizens.

Sarcasm "Off"....

Just to clear things up. Taubman is listed as the Owner/Operater of City Creek Center, which is the retail portion of City Creek. They are likely the ones that filed the lawsuit, not the LDS Church.

Wow, such compassion from the Church for a mentally ill man.

Taubman operates the center; City Creek is owned by the LDS church.

If not owned by a church, there were be no crazy "can't be open on Sunday or serve alcohol" rules.

Actually, according to a statement made by Taubman, they actually own the retail buildings at City Creek Center, and also own two parcels of land under the two restaurants that are open on Sunday. The other retail buildings are built on property that is owned by City Creek Reserve, Inc. (which is owned by the LDS Church), but is leased by Taubman under a long-term lease agreement. The shopping center is "owned" by Taubman. It is similar to Park City Mountain Resort and Powdr Corp. which owns the buildings, and equipment at their resort, and part of the property, but has leased a large portion the land from Talisker/Vail.

Where in my original posting did I say he should not be prosecuted and punished? Please read it again.

No doubt he has $300,000 or more in the bank. The restraining order I can understand. The rest makes no sense. The attack didn't happen. Let's all be grateful.

TV rights and book deals are now clearly under first claim by this suit. Even the lawyers get feed second, what is wrong with that plan?

Incomplete information in this story. City Creek is a business, not a church. Just exactly who are the plaintiffs?

And here I thought that all you people from Utah had guns so as to protect your selves. Or as the saying go's from the NRA and most of Utah's people that post on here we need to arm every one. Or was it miss reported in the news that your boys on the hill tried to pass that law? And where is all the posts from gun owner's that they could have and would have taken him down? Like they were posting after the theater shooting in CO.? Or maybe there just a lot of hot air? And don't you know that a good guy with a gun will stop a bad one.
