AG, governor seek to have polygamists' lawsuit dismissed

Attorney Jim Hood and Gov. Phil Bryant have filed a joint motion to dismiss a lawsuit bought by polygamists.

In September, self-identified polygamists filed a federal lawsuit in the state seeking to prevent gay marriages, saying it doesn’t pass the constitutional "Lemon test" of prohibition on government favoring one religious view over another.

If gay marriage is legal, then polygamy marriage should be legal, the lawsuit said. An amended lawsuit was filed last month with virtually the same language.
