Utah Tries Again to Halt Same-Sex Marriages

Utah state attorneys “will tell a federal judge on Monday that same-sex couples who marry in Utah may be irreparably harmed if efforts to overturn his ruling succeed and those marriages are later invalidated,” the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

“To avoid that ‘cloud of uncertainty,’ the state wants U.S. District Judge Robert J. Shelby to put on hold the ruling he issued Friday declaring Utah’s ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional.”

    If Utah state attorneys were really so concerned about the welfare of same-sex couples, they could simply stop their own efforts to reinstate Utah’s same-sex marriage ban and all would be well.
