$8 Million Is Total Billing Tab To Date.
As reported by a recent article in the Salt Lake Tribune, United Effort Plan (UEP), a polygamous trust now controlled by the State of Utah (owning property in Utah, Arizona, and British Columbia), has been spending about $100,000 a month in attorney’s fees for attorneys performing work on behalf of the trust. (At its peak, UEP was involved in 35 lawsuits.) The Attorney General having supervision over the seized trust has asked a judge to cut a recent fee request down from $925,628 to $833,074. Overall, the article indicates that the total fee billing tab since the state seized the trust comes to around $8 million.
