Utah attorney general hires 3 lawyers to fight same-sex marriage ruling

Deseret News is reporting:

A Washington, D.C., lawyer with Utah ties and vast constitutional and appellate law experience will handle the state's case against same-sex marriage in an unconventional arrangement involving a conservative political think tank.

Attorney General Sean Reyes named Gene C. Schaerr as lead outside counsel among three lawyers the state hired Thursday to make Utah's case in the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.

"Gene Schaerr is an elite Supreme Court and appellate expert. He is from Utah. He understands our unique history and community," Reyes said.
