Colorado SSM Ban Struck Down, Stay Ignored

by Brig Bagley

14 July 2014

Another federal judge has ruled that a state ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional. Last week on July 9th, Colorado joins the dominoes of SSM bans across the US. The judge stayed the ruling, pending appeal. Since Colorado is already in the a district that reviewed SSM bans, this ruling may be clumped into that decision. 

Despite the stay, two county clerks have issued marriage licences to gay couples. Upon crying foul from opponents of the ruling, a judge reviewed and ruled that there was nothing wrong with the clerks' decision, but warned that future reviews and ruling may invalidate the licences issues during the stay.
