A federal judge in Utah has ruled in favor of polygamy.

U.S. District Judge Clark Waddoups struck down parts of a law banning polygamy because he says it violates freedom of religion.

The case revolves around a lawsuit filed by a polygamist family that appears on the TLC reality show, "Sister Wives."

Kody Brown and his four wives sued Utah three years ago after a county prosecutor threatened to charge them under the state's bigamy law.

The Utah attorney general said he will appeal the federal judge's decision.
