Settlement Signed by All Parties


    The settlement offer that Utah Lighthouse Ministry signed on Nov. 29, 2000, has been signed by IRI. (Intellectual Reserve Inc.), copyright holder of the LDS Church.

    The Permanent Injunction and Judgment has also been signed by Judge Tena Campbell and entered into the court record as of December 8, 2000, with only one minor change; on page 3 where it says the Preliminary Injunction is "dissolved, withdrawn and vacated," the word "withdrawn" has been removed and initialed by the Judge. To the best of our knowledge this minor change does not affect the agreement in any way since the Preliminary Injunction is still "dissolved and vacated."

    Contrary to some reports, this settlement agreement was prepared and offered to Utah Lighthouse Ministry by IRI. When Utah Lighthouse Ministry signed the settlement agreement it became a legally binding contract and could not be altered by IRI or the LDS Church. However, the settlement was still subject to the Judge's approval in regard to dissolving and vacating her previous orders.

    Below is the updated (signed) photos of the Permanent Injunction and Judgment and Settlement Stipulation:
