COLORADO ATTORNEY GENERAL PROVIDES UPDATE ON STATUS OF SAME-SEX MARRIAGE IN COLORADO
Governor John Hickenlooper and Clerks of Adams, Boulder, Denver and Jefferson Counties Sign on to Motions
DENVER—This afternoon, the Colorado Attorney General’s Office, the Governor’s Office and the Clerks of Adams, Boulder, Denver and Jefferson Counties filed joint motions to lift stays in the 10th Circuit and Colorado Supreme Court. In addition, the parties moved to dismiss appeals of lower-court decisions in federal court as well as in Adams and Boulder Counties. While the high court’s decision not to hear an appeal of the 10th Circuit ruling means that same-sex marriage will be legal in Colorado soon, stays put in place by the federal and state courts must first be lifted.
