The Herbert vs. Kitchen case has accelerated beyond what anyone has expected. This is the case against Utah's Amendment 3 same-sex marriage ban. The case was resolved at the Dec. 20 ruling, allowing gays to marry in the state. Now the appeals court granted review in 5 weeks, when they often take a year. The Prop 8 case took about 4 years to completely resolve. This case is already going to beat that rate by at least a year. 

The costs to cover the case are an estimated $600k so far. Several fundraisers have covered a small portion of this, and it's looking for more. Restore our Humanity is looking for 1 million people to donate $5 for the cost of the court fees on the way to legalizing same-sex marriage in the nation.
