Great Salt Lake Authority v. Island Ranching Co

In Great Salt Lake Authority v. Island Ranching Co., 18 Utah 2d 276, 421 P.2d 504 (1966), the Court struck down a legislative grant of authority to an agency because there was "uncertainty" regarding the "area over which the agency was to exercise its functions" and the "objectives and purposes" to be served by the agency were undefined. Id. at 277, 421 P.2d at 505. Moreover, the court found no "limitation on the power granted," and the "powers, duties and responsibilities" of the agency were not identified. Id. at 278, 421 P.2d at 505.
