Denver • A third Colorado county is issuing marriage licenses to gay couples even though the legal fight on the issue isn't over in the state.

Pueblo County began handing out licenses on Friday. On Thursday, Denver joined Boulder County in issuing the licenses after a state judge refused to stop the Boulder clerk.

Colorado's 2006 gay marriage ban remains on the books. But the judge said it is "hanging on by a thread" following a recent appeals court ruling and another state court ruling this week.



Colorado Attorney General John Suthers has pledged to go to the Colorado Supreme Court as soon as possible "to prevent a legal patchwork quilt from forming" in the state.
