Snyder’s Jazz exit, Lee’s election claims, Utah Lake countersuit

(Francisco Kjolseth | The Salt Lake Tribune) Utah Jazz head coach Quin Snyder discusses his departure from the team after eight seasons during a news conference in Salt Lake City on Monday, June 6, 2022.

During a C-SPAN appearance, Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, embraces baseless claims about fraud in the 2020 election. A Brigham Young University ecologist countersues the backers of a plan to build islands in Utah Lake, saying their lawsuit is an attempt to silence him. The head of the NAACP of Utah asks the Department of Justice to investigate allegations of harassment and discrimination by the Salt Lake City School Board. And, after eight years, Quin Snyder steps down as head coach of the Utah Jazz, leaving a star player “unsettled.
