DENVER (AP) - Five county clerks in Colorado are asking the state Supreme Court to give them a yes or no answer when it comes to the legality of same-sex marriage licenses.

KUSA-TV reports (https://on9news.tv/1mNCpzj ) that county clerks of Jefferson, Douglas, La Plata, Arapahoe and Mesa counties have filed a brief with the court. They’re asking for guidance from the state’s high court as it considers a request from state Attorney General John Suthers to block the issuing of licenses to same-sex couples currently underway in Boulder, Denver, and Pueblo counties.

The clerks do not take a position on same-sex marriage.

Suthers wants the court to grant an emergency injunction to block licenses for same-sex marriages, pending an appeal of an Adams County judge’s decision. The judge struck down the state’s gay-marriage ban.
