Judge Declines to Throw Out Sister Wives Law Suit in Utah

Posted: August 20, 2012 in family law

Yes, I know.  This has nothing to do with California Family Law, but it is interesting to me, none the less.  According to an article in the Washington Post on August 18th, U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups made the ruling Friday in the case filed by Kody Brown and his four wives — Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn.  They have argued that Utah’s bigamy law should be overturned because it violates their right to privacy.

Utah officials had stated that the suit should be dropped because they were not going forward with charging Kody Brown and his four wives with bigamy and therefore had no standing to file this suit.  Judge Waddoups stated that the promise from the Utah County Attorney’s Office appeared to be a ploy to avoid the suit.

You can read the ruling here.  The next filing in this case is August 31, 2012.
