(Salt Lake City, UT) — Utah is getting a month-long extension to file an appeal against a judge’s order to recognize spousal benefits to same-sex couples. The Court of Appeals approved the extra time Tuesday. Earlier this month attorneys for four gay and lesbian couples filed a brief with the court saying longer time for Utah would prolong harm to same-sex couples. The state’s deadline is late October.
