The little gay-marriage case in Utah that roared & made history

(Leah Hogsten | The Salt Lake Tribune) Plaintiffs in the now-closed case of Kitchen v. Herbert, Derek Kitchen and Moudi Sbeity discuss the journey to marriage equality in Utah and what it’s been like to be at the focal point of one of the highest-profile, history-making gay marriage cases in the country,Thursday, October 9, 2014 at their home in Salt Lake City. The same-sex plaintiffs’ win at the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals was upheld when the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear the state’s appeal.

Derek Kitchen’s name will live on in law books — along with his partner’s — as three plaintiff couples who brought down Utah’s Amendment 3 and propped up same-sex unions across the nation.
