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."

Please do your full background check on this and see how many times these people filed for bankruptcy and public assistance. They are criminals who made false statements to obtain taxpayers' money. Kody Brown doesn't put his name on his children's birth certificates yet he and his only legal wife (who only have one child together) claimed his children from the "marriages" as their own in order to file bankruptcy.
Furthermore, there is video of one of his "wives" stating that they knew full well (before the television show first aired) that the state of Utah would not prosecute them for polygamy nor take their children from them. These people are frauds.
Please define these words again! Bigamy, adultery, plural marriage, and just plain marriage. I am confused.
