Boulder, Colorado told to stop issuing gay marriage licenses

gay marriage halted in BoulderBoulder County must stop issuing marriage licenses to gay couples while the Colorado Supreme Court considers an appeal from the state's attorney general, justices said in a ruling Tuesday.

The court ruling was in response to an appeal from Republican Attorney General John Suthers, who has been trying for several weeks to get Boulder's clerk to stop giving marriage licenses to gay couples until there is a definitive ruling on same-sex unions from the U.S. Supreme Court.

The same court previously ruled in Suthers' favor in ordering Denver to stop issuing licenses, but that ruling didn't apply to Boulder.

Boulder was the first Colorado county to begin giving licenses to gay couples in June after the Denver-based 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled against Utah's same-sex marriage ban. That ruling was put on hold pending appeal. Along with Utah, the 10th Circuit includes Colorado, Kansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma and Wyoming.
