Martin v. Kristensen, 2021 UT 17 (May 27, 2021)
A divorce court entered a temporary order granting the wife possession of a home owned by her father-in-law during the pendency of the divorce proceedings. The father-in-law filed a
lawsuit to evict the wife and obtained an unlawful detainer judgment against her. On appeal, the wife argued that the father-in-law had no right to seek unlawful detainer remedies because her possession of the home was lawful under the possession order. The court affirmed the unlawful detainer judgment, holding that the temporary possession order in the divorce functioned like a temporary possession order in an unlawful detainer proceeding, but did not affect the availability of statutory remedies for unlawful detainer.
