Jeff Matura, the attorney for Colorado City, and Blake Hamilton, the attorney for Hildale, speak to the media after the jury's finding against the towns was announced.

A federal jury decided yesterday that two polygamous towns on the Arizona-Utah border discriminated against residents who were not members of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.

The verdict caps a seven-week trial in the Phoenix federal court, but there’s still a lot more to come in this case.

KJZZ’s Jude Joffe-Block spoke about the outcome.
