The ruling in December was welcomed by Kody Brown and his four wives, who star in the hit TLC cable TV reality show “Sister Wives,” and other fundamentalist Mormons that practice polygamy with the belief it brings exaltation in heaven.

The Brown family sued Utah overt its polygamy laws in 2011 and fled Utah for Las Vegas under the threat of prosecution.

Attorney General Sean Reyes, a Republican, is waiting for a final ruling from Waddoups before announcing whether he will appeal. The final ruling has been delayed because of unresolved matters in the case relating to whether Brown and his wives will seek monetary damages

Reyes’ spokeswoman Missy Larsen says the attorney general intends to appeal, but needs to review the final ruling first before making that call.
