Colorado Won’t See Gay Marriage Yet

DENVER (AP) — Gay marriage isn’t coming to Colorado yet.

A federal appeals court on Thursday extended a stay on a ruling from last month that found the state’s gay marriage ban is unconstitutional. The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals noted that the court has stayed similar rulings in other states. The U.S. Supreme Court stayed an analogous ruling from Virginia this week.

Gay couples had sued hoping to take advantage of recent rulings to immediately invalidate Colorado’s gay marriage ban. But the trial judge last month declined to let his decision striking down the ban go into effect. And Thursday’s ruling makes clear the federal courts will wait until the U.S. Supreme Court has final say.

Another lawsuit against the ban is before the Colorado Supreme Court.
