After the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down Utah’s same-sex marriage ban in June, Boulder's County Clerk, Hillary Hall, began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Colorado’s Attorney General brought suit to stop Hall from issueing licenses and claiming that they are invalid under state law. A Boulder district judge denied the AG’s request since Hall, while engaging in civil disobediance, is not causing the state any harm. Now, the Denver County Clerk has begun issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples as well.
