Mormon Church Says It Won't File Court Brief Against Utah Marriage (For Now)

Via Salt Lake City's Fox affiliate:
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is not currently planning to file an amicus curiae (“friend of the court”) brief in the appeal of a ruling that struck down Utah’s ban on same-sex marriage, a spokeswoman for the LDS church confirmed Thursday. The LDS church did file two such briefs last year, when they asked the U.S. Supreme Court to uphold California’s Proposition 8 and the federal Defense of Marriage Act. LDS church spokeswoman Jessica Moody said the current plan not to file an amicus curiae could change at a later date.
Interesting. But let's see if this holds.
