Utah’s governor believes the state of Utah should appeal a federal court decision that struck down a key part of the state law banning polygamy.
The decision in Brown v. Herbert was first issued last December, but only became final this week. It struck down the part of Utah’s law dealing with cohabitation. Kody Brown, who appears on the TV show Sister Wives, had challenged the law on the basis of religious freedom.
After the taping of his monthly TV news conference, Governor Gary Herbert told reporters the state ought to appeal that decision.
