    Why did Benson fail to consult with the state supreme court on issues involved? Why did he rule when there were still pending issues in state court? His actions seem to be designed to disrupt the flow of justice.

    Benson has failed to incorporate the proper supreme court precedents. Supreme Court rulings allow the state the intervene in all sorts of ways to hamper a religiously connected organization that is proactively breaking the law.

    I live in Hildale/Colorado City. I am a beneficiary of the Trust. There is no Trust here. This issue needs to be solved here, not in court. When a Trust dies
    progress and hope die with it. The Trust has grown in numbers ( 4 generations ).
    Passed from the sweat and labor of wonderful parents, forward to their childrens childrens children in the belief that they had provided security and safety to us. The Flds are exclusive, the states are exclusive, the courts and all who serve them are exclusive. TRUST is inclusive. LOVE is the only lasting solution.

    This is funnier than Charlie Sheen.



    They need to desolve the trust imho, and give it to the benies before its completely wasted. Perhaps it will take a trip to the SCOTUS before final resolution. Wont that be funny? Lot of eyebrows will be raised over lots of issues.

    I think the judges order and decision was very clear and precise, Utah has to let it go and they are not willing to give up a multimillion dollar scam and fraud scheme. Any other considerations contrasty to the judges decisions to release the trust all must be considered moot and irrelevant.

    This is how the justice system works and the years of this states previous actions are becoming under doubt and question and putting some holes in how the state defrauds and scams citizens. Give it up Utah, you lose and got caught with your hands in the cookie jar, again.

    Sounds like we have a situation here where no one knows what to do or how to do it.Maybe we ought to take a poll, or let the parties arm wrestle or have a congressional investigation.Congress could give some good advice,They been in that situation for years.Lots of experience in getting nothing done.Sure wish Will Rogers was still around, He would know what to do.
