Polygamous family launches challenge of Utah law

Reality TV stars Kody Brown and his four wives say they just want one thing: to be left alone.

As authorities investigate them for bigamy, the TLC “Sister Wives” family is asking a federal judge to overturn part of Utah’s bigamy law because it bans them from living together and criminalizes sexual relationships between unmarried consenting adults.

“What they are asking for is the right to structure their own lives, their own family, according to their faith and their beliefs,” said Jonathan Turley, their attorney, adding that the lawsuit is about privacy — not polygamy.
