Nevada clerks won’t issue same-sex marriage licenses


LAS VEGAS — After a day of on-again, off-again developments, the county clerk at the busy Las Vegas marriage bureau has decided against issuing same-sex marriage licenses.

Clark County Clerk Diana Alba said late Wednesday afternoon she didn’t know when she and other county clerks in the state would be able to begin issuing licenses for same-sex marriages.

Alba says they all want to be on the same page.

Nevada has been in limbo since the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco ruled Tuesday that gay couples’ equal protection rights were violated by same-sex wedding bans in Nevada and Idaho.
