DENVER – Utah’s attorney general plans to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court a ruling Wednesday that found states must allow gay couples to marry.
Republican Sean Reyes’ office said in a statement Wednesday it will file a petition to have the country’s highest court review the decision by a three-judge panel of the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver.
The office also left open the possibility of requesting a review from the full panel of judges at the 10th Circuit.
The attorney general’s office says even though the 10th Circuit ruling went against Utah, the state is pleased that it moves the important issue one step closer to the Supreme Court.
