What you wanna bet Dan Fischer is the Highest Bidder?

Or maybe one of the highest? Depleting the cash resources of the FLDS? The Berry Knoll sale is approved to the highest bidder by the Judge.
KSTU/AP - "A Utah judge has ordered the sale of a 400-acre parcel of land that is part of a trust established by followers of jailed polygamous sect leader Warren Jeffs. In a ruling issued Monday, 3rd District Court Judge Denise Lindberg says a liquidity crisis of the United Effort Plan Trust makes the sale of Berry Knoll necessary.

Her order calls for the northern Arizona property to be sold to the highest bidder."
This should be interesting to watch, and heinous as well.

If the FLDS Church wants the land, they are more than free to bid on it, just like everyone else.

Of course, they might not like the idea that if they are the high bidder, the money will go towards defending the UEP Trust against FLDS claims...

So, you're admitting that the current management of the UEP trust is trying to deprive the people who created it, and extorting money from them for a sacred site.

How is this any different than kidnapping?

Isn't this a lot like paying a ransom to Somali pirates so that they can then use that to buy more weapons and equipment to capture more ships?

Nope, I'm saying nothing of the sort. The legal management of the trust is following the law, while defending itself against bogus FLDS claims. You do remember that the judge has twice ruled that Willie & Lyle et al did not have standing?

Your two examples are poor - both kidnapping and piracy are crimes, while the sale is legally sanctioned by the court...

It is in fact excellent Blues, analogies differ from actual events and serve to illustrate what's going on. You make a subtle version of the error "analogy as fact." I sought to illustrate that these are strong armed tactics, hence my choice of colored illegal acts similar to what is being done here.

The fact that what has gone on so far has been "legal" doesn't impress me and you're schoolyard juvenile insistance that "the court ruled" as if it was "truth" is silly. By your reckoning this is one of the few court battles that the FLDS has lost, though you insist they "lose again."

The FLDS won approximately 439 times with regard to custody in Texas and Judge Walther has been overturned every time she has been appealed.

Furthermore, I don't follow the legal intricacies of the UEP dispute, I see it as purely poltical. That fact was evidenced by the Judge saying it was impossible to return the land to "polygamists." Her bias is clear. Her rulings are colored by that bias. Rulings made out of rabid bias are often overturned as they are not made on sound legal footing, they are made and then sound legal footing is sought afterward, and not always found.

Much as is being done in Texas, now.
