Court Schedules Hearing in ACLU of Utah Suit for State to Honor Marriage

06 March 2014 Published in The ACLU of Utah Activist

On February 4, 2014, the ACLU of Utah filed a motion with the federal court seeking an order that the State must immediately recognize marriages of all same-sex couples married in Utah.

We also asked that Utah continue to recognize them while the litigation in Evans v. Utah continues.This type of order is called a preliminary injunction.  Right now, all of the written arguments on the motion from both sides is complete.  The court has scheduled a hearing on the motion, where the attorneys for the parties will be able to make their arguments, for Wednesday, March 12, at 10:00 a.m.  The hearing is currently scheduled to take place in Judge Kimball's courtroom, which is located at the federal courthouse, 350 S. Main Street.  For those interested in attending, the hearing is open to the public.
