FLDS No Longer Controls Own Assets

The religious leaders of the nation's best known polygamous sect, which was the subject of a massive raid in Texas (a raid which Arizona and Utah officials have made clear that they do not intend to repeat in a public meeting at St. George, Utah), do not control the trust which owns almost all of the community's assets. The trustee was replaced with a receiver, and the trust was reformed, in recent charitable trust litigation brought by the relevant state attorney general (the state attorney general generally has standing to bring actions regarding all charitable trust as a trust protector of last resort).
