No charges will be filed against the polygamous family featured on the TLC reality show Sister Wives.
Before the show premiered in 2010, Utah authorities had begun investigating charges of bigamy against Kody Brown, 44, and his four wives – Meri, 41, Janelle, 43, Christine, 40, and Robyn, 33 – who have 17 children among them, but the case is now closed, reports the Associated Press.
Brown moved his wives and children to Las Vegas in the wake of the investigation and sued Utah County, as well as the state governor and attorney general.
The state lawsuits were later dropped, and on Thursday, Utah County prosecutor Jeff Buhman filed a motion seeking to have the case against the county dismissed.

When you have 16 brothers and sisters, four moms and a dad, it takes some time to meet everyone.
Baby Solomon – born on Wednesday to polygamist reality television stars Kody Brown, 43, and his newest (and fourth) wife Robyn, 33, was welcomed by Brown's three other wives and their blended family of 16 kids, who celebrated the at-home birth as one big happy family.
Brown's first wife, Meri, and their daughter, Mariah, 16, were among the first to arrive after Solomon was born.
"Mariah picked up Solomon and just started crying with joy," says Brown. "My second daughter was holding my newest boy and it was beautiful ... And the rest of the family got to come. It was wonderful."

Kody Brown and his four wives already have 16 children. But it's news about the 17th that shakes up the household on the new season of Sister Wives, which premieres Sunday (9 p.m. ET) on TLC.
A new preview of season 3 shows Brown revealing to the family that his fourth wife, Robyn Sullivan, is pregnant. But not everyone seems thrilled at the announcement.
Later, Sullivan – the first new wife to enter the family in 16 years – breaks down as she recalls the somewhat chilly reception to her news by some of the family's older children.
