Utah: Some citizens' legally-performed marriages are pointedly stripped of validity
Disgusting and possibly unlawful:
Utah Gov. Gary Herbert’s (R) office announced Wednesday that his state will not recognize the over 1,300 same sex marriages performed between when a federal trial judge held that the Constitution requires marriage equality and when the Supreme Court stayed that decision on Monday. The governor’s announcement applies so long as the Supreme Court’s stay is in effect.

So much for "protecting marriage." This is one of the clearest cut cases of conservatives truly and deliberately harming certain taxpayers' civil freedoms.
It's exceedingly gross, but it might also unwittingly help us make our next case.
