  • Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in the News

    I thought this would get a good miscellaneous thread to catch all those interesting stories about news worthy Mormon that aren't interesting enough for their own threads.

    I'll start. A member of my stake presidency (attorney) and a member of one of the bishoprics within the stake (judge) are making the news after both having removed themselves from a big insurance case. Why? The prosecution objected due to the fact that the attorney would have influence over the judge due to his elevated church status.

    Does this happen in Utah much?

    I didn't know Doug Smith was a Mo. (Also, Gerry Gillock is a plaintiff's attorney, not a prosecutor).
    Ain't it like most people, I'm no different. We love to talk on things we don't know about.

          And I didn't know he was a judge!

          Seattle. That guy is deserving of and has been granted his own thread. Keep up!

                Let us hope not, but the Feds have mismanaged it so far.

                Upon rejecting the Beatles, Dick Rowe told Brian Epstein of the January 1, 1962 audition for Decca, which signed Brian Poole and the Tremeloes instead.

                  Agreed. How this has taken 20 years is maddening.

                    The Feds do a poor job of land use management, but especially in the area of grazing rights and water rights.

                    There is a case in US District Court in Reno that controls certain water rights which has dragged on since 1934. Its case number is D-185. It will outlive you and me.

                      Does he have any legitimate gripe with regards to the land-use changes he refused to accept 20 years ago?

                          Here is an interesting article. Sounds like things are getting out of hand there.. Also, based on the article it states this Bundy family has been ranching in this area since the 1870's, and the annexed part of the county/land for the purpose of a desert tortoise..
