Evans v. Utah

Evans v. Utah is a federal court challenge filed January 21, 2014 by the American Civil Liberties Union and the ACLU of Utah on behalf of four same-sex couples who were legally married in Utah after a federal court struck down a state ban, but before the U.S. Supreme Court temporarily halted marriages from taking place while the state challenged the decision. The suit challenges Utah's decision to place recognition of those marriages on hold indefinitely. The case was originally filed in a Utah state court, but later moved to the U.S. District Court in Salt Lake City.
