Brown v. Buhman — F.3d —-, 2016 WL 1399358 (10th Cir. April 11, 2016)

Apr 11, 2016

This case involves a challenge to Utah’s bigamy statute. The Utah County Attorney appealed the district court’s order granting summary judgment in favor of the plaintiffs. The court held that because the Utah County Attorney’s Office had closed its file on the plaintiffs and adopted a policy under which it would only pursue bigamy charges against those who induce a partner to marry through misrepresentation or are suspected of committing a collateral crime such as fraud or abuse, the case was moot.
