Salt Lake Tribune: Utah Seeks Outside Help In Request For Gay-marriage Stay

Newly-appointed Utah Attorney General, Sean Reyes, apparently recognizes that his office is "way" over its head

Fascinating development in the Kitchen v. Herbert Utah same sex marriage case, as the Utah A.G.'s Office prepares to take the matter to the U.S. Supreme Court, on the heels of being rebuffed in its requested "stays" of execution four (count 'em 4) times by both US. District Court Judge Shelby and the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals earlier in the week:
Encouraging to learn that our newly-appointed Utah Attorney General, Sean Reyes, apparently recognizes that his office is "way" over its head, ainnit?

Of course, if you take the time to read Judge Shelby's well-reasoned full decision it becomes obvious that whatever private law firm takes up the task of rescuing Utah's ill-conceived, and now constitutinally overtuned "ban" on same sex marriage most definitely has its work cut out for it:

Needless to say, we'll be keeping a close eye on the U.S. Supreme Court docket over the next four days.

Stay tuned, folks.

Panic much?

have appeared to be in total panic since last Friday, when the ruling
came out. And as I have been out and about over the last week, I have
not noticed any signs of society collapsing.

The end of the world as predicted by the ancient Mayan calendar was off by one year. The world ended for many people on the afternoon of December 20, 2013 when Judge Shelby issued his ruling on the case.
