Federal Lawsuit Filed In Ongoing Hutterite Dispute

April 20, 2012, 2:25 PM

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A federal lawsuit against three Aberdeen attorneys is the latest spat in an ongoing battle over control of a Hutterite colony near Stratford.

Two groups have been at odds over which branch of the Hutterite religion to follow. A judge in 2010 ordered dissolution of the colony, but the state Supreme Court overturned the decision, saying it's a religious matter.

The Hutterville Hutterian Bretheran, George Waldner Sr., Tom Waldner and Kenneth Waldner filed a racketeering lawsuit Thursday against the Siegel, Barnett and Schutz firm and attorneys Jeff Sveen, Rodrick Tobin and Harvey Jewett.

The suit alleges the attorneys helped get the colony under the leadership of Joseph Wipf.

Sveen did not immediately return a phone and email message seeking comment.

The suit requests a jury trial to determine damages.
