BOISE, Idaho (AP) - The legal team that successfully fought to overturn Idaho’s ban on gay marriage has filed paperwork seeking an additional $300,000 in court costs.

Boise attorney and lead counsel Deborah Ferguson filed the three-page motion Thursday in federal court to cover legal expenses since late May.

A federal judge late last year awarded Ferguson and her team $400,000 for work through May.

Gay marriage became legal in Idaho on Oct. 15 after the 9th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals upheld a federal judge’s ruling made in May declaring Idaho’s ban on same-sex marriage violated the U.S. Constitution.

Idaho Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter and Attorney General Lawrence Wasden’s in December filed separate petitions to the U.S. Supreme Court to continue fighting against gay marriage.
