Utah To Appeal Marriage Recognition

Via the Salt Lake Tribune:

Utah intends to appeal a federal judge’s ruling that requires the state to recognize the same-sex marriages performed during the brief time it was legal in late December and early January. Gov. Gary Herbert and Attorney General Sean Reyes filed a notice of appeal Wednesday in U.S. District Court. The case would go to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver. Judge Dale Kimball issued a decision May 19 requiring the state to recognize and grant all benefits to marriages which were performed before the U.S. Supreme Court stayed another federal judge’s ruling that allowed same-sex marriage in Utah. Kimball also put his order on hold for 21 days to allow the state time decide whether to appeal.
