Idaho Same Sex Marriage Plantiffs Seeking Court Costs

Lisa F. Young, ThinkStock

BOISE (AP/KTVB) – Four couples who successfully sued Idaho Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter over the state’s gay marriage ban are now asking to be reimbursed for nearly half a million dollars of attorney fees and other court costs.

The group filed a motion in Boise’s U.S. District Court on Tuesday asking that the state be ordered to pay more than $467,000 for the expenses associated with bringing the lawsuit.

U.S. District Magistrate Judge Candy Dale overturned Idaho’s ban on same-sex marriage earlier this month, saying the ban unconstitutionally denies gay and lesbian residents of their constitutional right to marry. Otter and Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden have appealed that ruling; the case is still pending before the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
