DENVER — Colorado’s attorney general is giving Boulder County’s clerk more time to consider whether to ask the state Supreme Court whether she has the authority to issue same-sex marriage licenses.
Colorado’s constitution bans same-sex unions. But the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver ruled last week in a Utah case that states cannot ban marriages based on the genders of people participating.
The 10th Circuit put its ruling on hold, however.
Six same-sex couples from Colorado filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday challenging the court’s stay.
