Attorneys for Utah ask for more time to figure out why they are taking away people’s rights

Attorneys for the state of Utah apparently need more time to devise a plan to deny Utah citizens their civil rights.  From Deseret News:

Attorneys for the state asked the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday for a 10-day extension of a Jan. 27 deadline for initial arguments.

In its motion, the state says it needs an extension to complete a “fulsome, detailed and quality” brief on the constitutional questions surrounding Utah’s definition of marriage as only between a man and a woman. It also says the state needs help from its newly hired outside counsel to prepare and file the brief.

The 10th Circuit put the case on a fast track after receiving Utah’s notice of appeal last month.

The case was fast tracked due to Utah’s request. Now the state says they don’t have enough time to get their arguments together?

If you don’t know what your arguments are, then maybe you shouldn’t be filing to take away people’s rights Utah.
