Three board members of the Minuteman Project anti-illegal immigration group cannot spend donations until a lawsuit over the organization’s leadership is resolved, a judge ruled Thursday.

Orange County Superior Court Judge Randell Wilkinson also barred the board members from using Minuteman Project letterhead and envelopes bearing the signature of founder Jim Gilchrist. However, the judge rejected Gilchrist’s request to be named sole owner of the organization pending trial, said James V. Lacy, an attorney for the board members.


Wilkinson also ordered all parties back to court April 25 for a hearing to determine whether the Minuteman Project’s finances will be put in the care of a court-appointed trustee pending trial.

Both sides saw victory in the judge’s tersely written, one-page ruling.
