Title Pioneer Justice
Description Judge Livingston) was a young man studying law in the office of a brilliant lawyer by the name of Grey. Livingston knew that John's divorce had been granted in a county court. He had read that a divorce must be obtained in a district court to be valid. Court action against John was taken. The sum of money paid to the woman has been forgotten. Livingston and Grey were each paid $10,000. It is reasonable to believe that Mormons had fewer legal problems than other westerners. For them, achieving salvation in heaven was dependent upon good moral conduct as prescribed in the Bible. Moreover, the Church enjoined its members to settle their differences in the Bishops' Courts. That is what many of them did. Gone are pioneer hard times; gone also are the days when men chose to pre-empt the legal process and administer justice as they deemed proper. Fortunately, for us the courts have become dominant. Source: Judge E. D. Wooley Successful checking of a 1929 flood near Mt. Pleasant by a flood control barrier. Courtesy Golden Sanderson -18-
