(DENVERPOST) — The Adams County District Court judge overseeing a lawsuit challenging Colorado's same-sex marriage ban declared the ban unconstitutional on Wednesday but stayed his ruling.
The ruling makes Colorado the latest in a string of states that have seen their bans on same-sex marriages tossed out by state and federal judges.
The ruling came as another judge in Boulder County considered a request by Attorney General John Suthers to stop a county clerk from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
