Kody Brown and his family are best known for their reality show "Sister Wives" on TLC. In 2011, the family fled from Utah to Nevada, fearing prosecution, after they say an investigation into their lifestyle was launched.
No charges were ever brought against them, but Brown sued the state of Utah, claiming his family's privacy rights were violated by a law banning co-habitation.
CNN's Chris Cuomo reports that the family won a major legal victory in Utah in December when a federal judge threw out the section of the state's ban on polygamy that prohibits co-habitation, but now that ruling is under siege.
Incoming Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes says he intends to appeal the judge's decision which could mean more legal battles ahead for Kody and his family.
On "New Day" Thursday, Cuomo asked Brown about the fact that he's not seeking Utah state validated marriage licenses for each of the women, just the co-habitation permission.
Brown responds: "We are looking at ourselves and we have chosen to be a family. We organized our family according to our religious beliefs...We have simply sought the right to be able to be a family according to our religious beliefs."
