Otter, Wasden File Appeal Notices

Both Idaho Gov. Butch Otter and Attorney General Lawrence Wasden, pictured, have now filed notices of appeal to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, to challenge U.S. Magistrate Judge Candy Dale’s ruling overturning Idaho’s ban on same-sex marriage. Those brief notices just say they’re appealing to the higher court. The governor also is bringing in an additional attorney, Monte N. Stewart, the founding president of the Utah-based Marriage Law Foundation and former U.S. Attorney for Nevada; Stewart now is a Boise attorney. Stewart has worked to defend bans on same-sex marriage in at least eight states, including Utah/Betsy Russell, Eye on Boise. More here.

Question: Do you agree/disagree with the actions taken by Gov. Otter and Attorney General Wasden?
