Meanwhile, a state Senate Democrat says he sees no reason for Utah to get involved — except for political reasons.
Last week, Massachusetts Attorney General Martha Coakley filed a lawsuit against the federal law.
All Massachusetts citizens "are entitled to equal treatment under the laws regardless of whether they are gay or straight," she said.
Massachusetts was the first state to recognize gay marriage. And Coakley added that the 16,000 gay couples married in her state are being denied rights — first, because those marriages are not recognized by other states, and second, because gay couples in her state are being unlawfully denied federal spousal benefits.
