PHOENIX (AP) -
A federal judge has taken under advisement a request to move a civil rights lawsuit against two polygamous towns out of Arizona. U.S. District Court Judge H. Russel Holland heard arguments telephonically Friday from lawyers for the U.S. Department of Justice and the twin towns of Hildale, Utah, and Colorado City. The government has alleged in the lawsuit that the towns have supported a campaign of intimidation against former members of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and denied them services. The defendants want the case moved to Utah, saying that would cut down on travel time and expenses for the parties and witnesses. Government lawyers say the defense has failed to make a strong showing of inconvenience.
