(Denver, CO) -- Colorado's Supreme Court is ordering a county clerk to stop issuing same-sex marriage licenses. The state's high court ruled today that Boulder County Clerk Hillary Hall must stop issuing the licenses while it rules on an appeal by the state's attorney general. Hall's office has issued around 200 marriage licenses to same-sex couples since late last month, after a federal appeals court ruled that a same-sex marriage ban in Utah was unconstitutional. Attorney General John Suthers said Hall was willfully misinterpreting the ruling.
