Boulder Issues More Same-Sex Marriage Licenses

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — Emboldened by a ruling against Utah’s gay marriage ban, Boulder County is continuing to issue same-sex marriage licenses.

Clerk Hillary Hall is issuing the licenses for the third straight day in Boulder on Friday. The licenses are also being offered at the clerk’s Lafayette and Longmont offices for the first time.

A total of 34 licenses were issued Wednesday and Thursday, including one to state Sen. Jessie Ulibarri and his partner Louis Trujillo.

Colorado Attorney General John Suthers, legal analysts and even the lawyer challenging Colorado’s gay marriage ban, say Hall’s actions aren’t legal because the ruling is on hold in case of a possible appeal. The ruling has no legal impact until the case is settled, so Utah’s ban is still in place and so is Colorado’s.
