Kentuckians Pay for Governor's Opposition to Gay Marriage

The state of Kentucky was left with a large legal bill after the case against same-sex marriage ended this year. The total cost for the state court is over $2 million, according to the Lexington Hearld-Leader. The Governor, Steve Beshear, said that he wanted the citizens of Kentucky to get a full understanding of how this law would affect them, but thinks the fees are too high. Beshear will argue that the fees are "unreasonable" for the attorneys he hired for the appeals process. As in other states, the attorneys representing the same-sex couples in this case had to endure stressful situations such as harassment and threats. Judge John G. Heyburn II ended up awarded those attorneys a $10,000 bonus because the achieved success despite such a stressful situation.
