ACT NOW! Confiscation
Zealot Appointed to Bench!
Deseret News article at the following link provides some very bad
news! Wasatch County Attorney Derek P. Pullan has been
appointed to the Fourth District Court bench by Gov. Mike
Pullan led the effort of the private property confiscation
lobby to repeal a resolution overwhelmingly passed at the
Republican Convention in 1998. This resolution resolved that
forfeiture should be allowed only if (1) the property owner is
convicted of related criminal wrongdoing, (2) full due process
is restored, and (3) forfeiture proceeds are directed to the
General Fund or preferably the Crime Victims Reparation Fund.
View this resolution.
Without prior notice, Pullan was given an opportunity to
convince the Republican Party Central Committee to support
repeal of the convention resolution. Pullan sought to replace
the resolution approved by the delegates with one that was
written on behalf of property confiscators.
View his resolution.
Fortunately, his effort failed. This failure occurred despite
Pullan having the written support of the Salt Lake County Law
Enforcement Administrators & Directors, South Jordan Chief of
Police, Statewide Association of Public Attorneys, Uintah
Basin Narcotics Strike Force, Utah Department of Public
Safety, Utah Sheriffs' Association, Weber/Morgan Narcotics
Strike Force, West Valley Chief of Police, and the the
Attorneys for Cache, Carbon, Daggett, Davis, Iron, Morgan,
Salt Lake, Sevier, Summit, Tooele, Uintah, Wasatch, Wayne, and
Confiscation zealots such as Pullan represent an enormous
threat to your right to own property, but possibly never more
so when they occupy the office of judge. Fortunately, our
constitutional form of government requires that judicial
appointees must be confirmed by the Senate for their
appointments to be effective.
To protect yourself from the menace of Derek Pullan's
confiscation zealotry, without delay (a hearing will be held
in no more than thirty days) you must contact members of the
Senate Judiciary Committee and your State Senator and request
that he or she reject Pullan's appointment to the Fourth
District Court. Obtain contact information for
of the Judiciary Committee can be found at the following
I would be interested in any information pertinent to your
contacts with Senators. Thank you.
