Sister, Wister, What's Your Legality?

Not that I care a whole lot about Mormons, but this caught my eye:

By the narrowest of margins, a bill expanding Utah's anti-bigamy law passed the state Senate just before a midnight deadline Thursday.

The bill changes the wording of what makes someone a bigamist in the state and adds penalties for cases that involve abuse, fraud and human trafficking, according to the text of the bill.

Kody Brown and his four wives, the stars of the reality TV show "Sister Wives," sued Utah in 2011, saying its law was unconstitutional. The polygamists won in US District Court in 2013 but the decision was overturned on appeal last year.

Utah wouldn't want to leave the Union now, would it?  Anywayz, I've blogged a couple three times about this case and related issues before...
