A federal appeals court ruled Monday, Nov. 5, 2012, that the polygamist sect on the Utah-Arizona border waited too long to challenge a court-ordered takeover, clearing the way for state authorities to break up a church trust and sell assets including homes, businesses and farms in two small towns. A three-judge panel of the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals overturned a federal judge in Salt Lake City, who ruled nearly two years ago that Utah's takeover violated the constitutional rights of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
