Utah Gov. Gary Herbert said Friday he was “very disappointed” with what he described as the judge’s activism.

“I am very disappointed an activist federal judge is attempting to override the will of the people of Utah,” said Mr. Herbert in a statement. “I am working with my legal counsel and the acting attorney general to determine the best course to defend traditional marriage within the borders of Utah.”
