As we continue to report on malfeasance, misfeasance and total disregard for the written law in Utah County we have found something that links all the alleged conspirators together. They all graduated from Brigham Young University Law School!
Kelly Peterson: Currently stands accused of violating the RICO law, including charges of promoting prostitution, suborning perjury, fraud etc. etc. Mr. Peterson is a graduate of BYU LAW SCHOOL! (A fact he has since deleted from his website!)
If covering up alleged crimes is what they teach at BYU, then it appears that everyone involved here graduated with honors. In fact, it seems that every Judge that serves Utah County is connected through the BYU Alumni Association.
Presiding Judge of the Utah 4th Judicial Court, DAVID N. MORTENSEN graduated from BYU Law School. Judge Mortensen graduated from the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University in 1993. He is an adjunct professor at the J. Reuben Clark Law School at Brigham Young University. We wonder if he taught Kelly Peterson’s course on ethics!
JUDGE JENNIFER A. BROWN who replaced Mortensen on the Kelly Peterson RICO case is also a graduate of BYU Law School!! Judge Brown received a Juris Doctor degree from Brigham Young University‘s J. Reuben Clark Law School. 5/15. How do you avoid a conflict of interest when you are presiding over a fellow BYU Alumni like Kelly Peterson???
JUDGE CHRISTINE S. JOHNSON, who appears to be the next judge who will preside over the Kelly Peterson RICO Lawsuit is another BYU Law Graduate!!! Judge Johnson received her Juris Doctor in 1996 from the J. Reuben Clark School of Law at Brigham Young University. Interestingly enough, She was employed as the assistant city attorney and city prosecutor at Spanish Fork City from 2003 until her appointment to the bench. Spanish Fork should have prosecuted Peterson’s co-defendant in the case, Alyssa Alanis, for fraud when she got a taxpayer funded lawyer for her criminal case while retaining a $300 lawyer for her divorce case. Did Peterson call in a few favors on this one???
There are 11 Judges in the 4th District Court. ALL ELEVEN JUDGES graduated from BYU Law School!!!! (LINK)
Under Rule 29, Conflict of Interest it states:
(d)(1) In the courts of record, if a party believes that a fair and impartial trial cannot be had in the court location or in the county where the action is pending, that party may move to have the trial of the case take place with a jury from another county or the case transferred to a court location in a county where a fair trial may be held. Such motion shall be supported by an affidavit setting forth facts.
Do BYU grads get preferential treatment in Utah County Courts? It appears that all the BYU Law School Grads stick together. Even when the innocent people they persecute and deny justice to are members of the same Church.
Apparently, not all Mormons are created equal. Some are definitely more equal than others. Bring on the Feds. Every one of this Court’s Cases should be reviewed for bias.
