New Utah attorney general will ‘spend whatever it takes’ to fight equal marriage

Sean Reyes

Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes has told reporters that the state is ready to appeal US District Judge Robert Shelby’s landmark ruling by taking it to the US Supreme Court.
Just minutes after being sworn in on Monday, Reyes said, “We’re willing to spend whatever it takes to protect the laws and the will of the people.” Reyes continued, ‘I don’t know the exact price tag, but that’s part of the process of evaluating and engaging outside counsel.”
The attorney general’s office has hired Monte Stewart, an attorney who founded the Marriage Law Foundation, an anti-equal marriage legal group, to assist with its challenge.
It’s predicted that the appeal could cost Utah taxpayers $2 million.
