Judge Again Refuses To Stop Boulder Gay Marriage

BOULDER, Colo. (AP) — A state judge has again refused to stop Boulder’s clerk from issuing marriage licenses to gay couples.

In an order issued Wednesday and included in the file of a pending federal lawsuit on gay marriage, Boulder District Judge Andrew Hartman denied Attorney General John Suthers’ request to put his previous ruling in favor of clerk Hillary Hall on hold.

Hartman previously found that the state’s same-sex marriage ban was hanging by a thread and allowed Hall to continue issuing licenses as a kind of civil disobedience. On Monday, Suthers asked Hartman to put his ruling on hold.

Denver and Pueblo counties have also issued licenses to gay couples. Denver stopped after being ordered to by the Colorado Supreme Court. Pueblo also agreed to stop because of that ruling.
