Federal Judge Will Not Dismiss Suit Against Utah Bigamy Law

SALT LAKE CITY — A ruling that was handed down late Friday by U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups will keep a lawsuit on track to be heard by the court as to whether or not Utah’s law against bigamy is constitutional.

The lawsuit filed by Kody Brown, a reality TV show polygamist who has four wives, challenges Utah’s ban on polygamy and seeks to decriminalize polygamy.

The state of Utah and the Utah County Attorney sought to have the lawsuit dismissed. However, Judge Waddoups’ denied that request. The lawyers for the state argued that the group would not be prosecuted, and therefore, the lawsuit was moot.

Judge Waddoups’ ruling can be read here.
