Timothy v. Pia, Anderson, Dorius, Reynard & Moss LLC, 2018 UT App 31 (Feb. 23, 2018).

Feb 23, 2018

The plaintiff—creditors sought to recover funds that debtors paid to a law firm under a theory of fraudulent transfer.  The court of appeals affirmed the district court’s grant of summary judgment to the law firm and one if its lawyers, holding the law firm was not a “transferee” of the funds at issue under Utah’s Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act because it held the funds in its trust account in a fiduciary capacity and did not have legal dominion or control over the funds.
