A daughter of John Daniel Kingston is suing him and many other members of her polygamous family, for forcing her to marry her uncle when she sixteen years old.
Lawyers for Mary Ann Kingston are fighting for 110 million dollars in damages.
Kingston ran away from the arranged marriage in 1998. Her father tracked her down and beat her with a belt until she was unconscious. Kingston went to jail for the beating.
