BOULDER, Colo. (AP) - Emboldened by a ruling against Utah’s gay marriage ban, Boulder County is continuing to issue same-sex marriage licenses.

Clerk Hillary Hall is issuing the licenses for the third straight day in Boulder on Friday. The licenses are also being offered at the clerk’s Lafayette and Longmont offices.

Thirty-four licenses were issued Wednesday and Thursday, including one to state Sen. Jessie Ulibarri and his partner Louis Trujillo.

Colorado Attorney General John Suthers says Hall’s actions aren’t legal because the ruling is on hold in case of a possible appeal. Utah’s ban is still in place and so is Colorado’s.

Gov. John Hickenlooper said Friday the state needs to see what action the U.S. Supreme Court takes. He says he hopes the Supreme Court acts quickly to resolve the issue.
