SALT LAKE CITY – The family from cable television’s polygamous “Sister Wives” reality show has told a federal judge in Utah how much they’ve been hurt by the threat of prosecution under the state’s bigamy law.

Kody Brown and his wives wrote in new court papers that they’ve lost jobs, were forced to move to Nevada and suffered harm to their reputations after police launched an investigation last year after the fall 2010 launch of their TLC show.

In July, Brown and wives Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robin, filed a lawsuit challenging Utah’s bigamy law in Salt Lake City’s U.S. District Court. They contended that the law is unconstitutional and unfairly applied to polygamists.

“Because the Browns are open about their polygamist lifestyle, the criminal bigamy statute has the effect of publicly labeling them as presumptive felons,” the Brown’s Washington, D.C.-based attorney, Jonathan Turley, wrote in court papers filed Monday. “The statute further brands them as immoral and societal outsiders.”

The court papers were a response to petition filed by the Utah Attorney General’s Office asking a federal judge to dismiss the case.

Actor comes out, says his future is ‘thrilling, scary’

NEW YORK – Actor Zachary Quinto says he feels a range of emotions after coming out in a recent New York magazine interview but most of all he’s grateful for the kindness he’s received since.

“I feel so incredibly grateful to all of the people who’ve reached out to me directly or indirectly or just in spirit and I feel really, really like my entire future is laid out in a different way and it’s thrilling and scary and overwhelming,” said Quinto at the premiere of his film “Margin Call” Monday night in New York.

The 34-year-old looks forward to the day when saying you’re gay “won’t be hard” and won’t matter.

“There’ve been people on this path who were much bigger trailblazers than me who did this at a time when it was even harder…and if me standing up and making some kind of acknowledgement and declaration helps that then I can’t ask for anything more out of my life.”

Quinto is best known for playing Spock in the latest “Star Trek” movie and for the TV show “Heroes.”

He not only acts in “Margin Call” but also serves as an executive producer.

The film focuses on a group of bank employees during a 24 hour period as the 2008 financial crisis is about to hit. It stars a roster of celebrities including Kevin Spacey, Demi Moore, Simon Baker and Penn Badgley.

“Margin Call” opens October 21.
