The Country of Endless Appealing continues the trend. The judges may rule that same-sex marriage is legal, but with the appeals, the fight will go on through the rest of my lifetime resulting in nothing good, in my opinion. There will never be a final answer, but then when has there ever been?
In May, a federal judge ordered Utah to recognize hundreds of gay marriages performed in December and January. This week, the state said it won’t accept the ruling without a fight.
Utah Gov. Gary Herbert and Attorney General Sean Reyes filed notice in federal court on Wednesday that the state would appeal U.S. District Judge Dale A. Kimball’s ruling validating more than 1,200 same-sex marriages, Fox 13 reports.
Kimball had ruled that the state must legally recognize the hundreds of same-sex marriages performed during a 17-day period beginning Dec. 20, 2013, when the state’s ban on gay marriage was briefly overturned.
