Office Of The Attorney General’s Statement Regarding Pueblo Clerk And Recorder‏

This afternoon the Pueblo County Clerk and Recorder at the request of the Attorney General discontinued issuance of same-sex marriage licenses.  In doing so, we’ve been able to avoid further wasteful litigation.

We are gratified that Clerk Ortiz has recognized that he needs to be on the right side of the law.  No matter one’s views on the issue of same-sex marriage, the Supreme Court of Colorado has made clear that until it has had a chance to rule on the merits, clerks must enforce the state’s laws, which are still in effect.
