With LDS Book on Net, Lawsuit Might Be Moot
Salt Lake Tribune 30Oct99 N1
By Sheila R. McCann: Salt Lake Tribune

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH -- Long-time LDS Church critics Jerald and Sandra Tanner have decided not to oppose a court order banning them from posting portions of the LDS Church's General Handbook of Instructions on their website. The Tanners say they will not oppose the order because the GHI is already available elsewhere on the Internet, specifically, an australian site, , and through usenet news postings archived at dejanews .

The owner of the australian site, David Gerard, says he has not yet been contacted by the LDS Church, according to the Salt Lake Tribune, which contacted Gerard. The Church says it was unaware of Gerard's pages and has not yet decided what action to take.

US District Court Judge Tena Campbell is scheduled to consider on November 10th a preliminary injunction against the Tanners. The Tanners now claim that since they have consented, the hearing is not necessary. But LDS Church lawyer Berne S. Broadbent says that while the consent is helpful, the Church hasn't decided whether or not to pursue a hearing.
