Idaho Gov. Otter Urges Supreme Court to Wait for Idaho
BOISE, Idaho (AP) — Idaho Gov. Butch Otter says the U.S. Supreme Court should wait until it receives arguments from Idaho before deciding a case involving gay marriage in the United States. Attorneys Gene Schaerr and Tom Perry filed arguments in a friend-of-the-court brief for a petition to have the Supreme Court hear a same-sex marriage case out of the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Otter listed several reasons why he believed Idaho's case is the "best vehicle" to decide the nationwide issue of same-sex marriage.
Among them: Idaho's case included both in-state marriages and recognition of out-of-state marriages.
