Five Wives Lawyer Represents Brown

The attorney and law professor who prompted Idaho’s state liquor division to reverse itself on allowing Five Wives vodka to be sold in the state last week also is pressing a lawsuit challenging Utah’s bigamy laws on behalf of the star of the reality TV show “Sister Wives.” Jonathan Turley, an attorney and law professor at George Washington University Law School in Washington, D.C., last week sent a letter threatening a federal lawsuit if Idaho didn’t reverse itself and allow the provocatively labeled vodka brand to be sold in the state; state liquor officials had rejected the brand as offensive to the state’s large Mormon population. It’s produced by an Ogden, Utah, distillery and is approved for sale in Utah state liquor stores/Betsy Russell, Eye On Boise. More here. (AP file photo)
