BOULDER, Colo. More same-sex couples are obtaining marriage licenses and getting married in Boulder County even though gay marriage remains illegal in Colorado.

Clerk Hillary Hall began issuing licenses Wednesday after a federal appeals court ruled that Utah's same-sex marriage ban was unconstitutional. More couples showed up Thursday to get licenses and signed them to marry themselves.

However, Colorado Attorney General John Suthers and legal analysts say Hall's actions aren't legal because the decision is on hold in case of a possible appeal. The ruling has no legal impact until the case is settled, so Utah's ban is still in place and so is Colorado's.

Levi Healy and Josh Hufford, a couple in their 30s from Denver, said they decided to get married before Suthers tried to stop the effort.
