SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The battle for control of a Utah polygamous church's land trust is in the hands of the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver.An appeals court clerk said Thursday two judges are considering an emergency motion to block a federal court ruling that gave the land back to the church run by its jailed leader, Warren Jeffs.The motion from a Utah state judge who has overseen the land trust for six years says the federal government shouldn't interfere.The state took control of the trust in 2005 amid allegations of mismanagement.But a federal judge in February ruled that the $114 million trust's assets should go back to the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. He said the seizure was unconstitutional.
