Paralegal Disqualified from Court Internship Over Alleged Polygamous Relationship With Litigant

A Utah paralegal has reportedly been disqualified from a court internship due to the appearance of a conflict of interest.

The paralegal was on a legal team involved in an ongoing child custody case between the father and the mother of the child.

Further, testimony heard in the case suggested that the paralegal was another one of the allegedly polygamist father’s wives.

The paralegal denied that allegation though. Instead, she described the two of them as being in a “committed relationship” with common children, and described herself as being merely “one of the ladies in his family”.
