Unfortunately, I don't find any of that in statutes. The closest thing to a landlord tenant statute is the Utah Fit Premises Act. But that doesn't appear to address termination of tenancies.
As for your security deposit if she's kicking you out she can't keep your deposit because you didn't give her proper notice. She'll have to apply and/or return the security deposit in accordance with the Residential Renters' Deposits statute:
If she wrongly keeps your security deposit you can sue her in small claims court.
Make sure you keep copies of those notices in a safe place so you have them later when you need them.
Other than that, it seems like the LL is a lunatic and you might be wise to get out of there as soon as possible and not quibble about your rights.

I'd naturally also report this eviction notice to the relevant authority, and assert that this act by her is a violation of the order issued against her.
Down the road, I'd talk with a local real estate attorney that also dabbles in civil litigation, 'cause you certainly have a viable civil action against her on a number of causes of action.
I'll echo PG's advisory "warning" with a twist: (Many) legal issues are complicated. Explanations and comments here might not fully identify or explain the ramifications of your particular problem. I do not give legal advice as such (and such is impermissible here at any rate). Comments are based on personal knowledge and experience and legal info gleaned over a quarter century, and every state has differing laws on and avenues to address most topics. If you need legal advice, you need to consult (and pay) a professional so that you may have someone to hold accountable. Acting on personal and informational advice from a stranger on the internet is a bad idea -- at least not without your own thorough due dilience/research and confirmation as it applies to your situation.
