Iota LLC v. Davco Mgmt. Co. LC, 2016 UT App 231 (Nov. 25, 2016)
Nov 25, 2016
This is the second appeal from the district court’s order of contempt issued against the defendants based on their failure to comply with an order requiring them to deposit all rents collected with the court. In this appeal, defendants sought, among other things, to challenge the validity of the underlying district court order. The court of appeals agreed with the district court that the collateral bar doctrine precludes defendants from waiting until after they violated the order to challenge its validity. In doing so, the court made clear that the collateral bar doctrine is part of Utah jurisprudence.
