Utah's SSM Plaintiffs Seek Attorney Fees from Utah

by Brig Bagley

12 November 2014

Now that the dust has settled from the Kitchen vs. Herbert case and its following sister case, the plaintiffs are asking the state of Utah to cover their attorney fees. Utah has already spent hundreds of thousands of dollars fighting marriage equality. The plaintiff attorneys are demanding extra recompense for the case, despite their initial agreement to work for free. Several fundraisers were thrown to help pay for the plaintiff's case and cover as much as possible for the help of the attorneys fighting for marriage equality. 

The Utah attorney general's office consider the request unreasonable. The courts involved in the cases will need to rule as to who is responsible for the fees.
