Same Sex Marriage in Utah is Banned Again
Last month a federal judge overturned a voter-approved ban on gay marriage in Utah, prompting 1,300 same-sex couples to get married. Now the Utah governor's office is saying that it will not recognize the gay couple's legal bonds as it presses charges to once again ban the marriage between two people of the same sex. On Monday, the state of Utah got the Supreme Court to issue a stay while the state appeals. This means that same-sex couples will not be able to get married until any further progress is made. The appeals court has set a briefing schedule that will end late February.
