OGDEN (ABC 4 News) - The Idaho State Liquor Division has decided to begin accepting special order requests for 'Five Wives Vodka', two weeks after banning the sale of the controversial vodka made at Ogden's Own Distillery.

The decision comes hours after George Washington University professor Jonathan Turley wrote at 5-page letter to Idaho officials saying he will sue on behalf of Ogden's Own if the state didn't reverse its decision not to allow the sale of 'Five Wives Vodka'. Turley, who represented the Brown family featured in the TLC program "Sister Wives", gave the state 10 days to reverse its position.

Idaho State Liquor Division director Jeff Anderson said last month that the brand is offensive to women and Mormons and that Five Wives "doesn't play here."

However, today in a prepared statement Anderson said, “In a shared desire to avoid unnecessary litigation costs to Ogden’s Own Distillery and the people of Idaho, today we have informed the makers of “Five Wives” vodka that we will immediately begin processing special order requests for both on-premise licensees and retail consumers."
