SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Utah County officials who held out on issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples even after a judge overturned a ban say they will now offer licenses to all eligible applicants.
Utah County Clerk/Auditor Bryan Thompson issued a statement Thursday saying the decision comes after an appeals court denied a motion from the state to stay U.S. District Judge Robert Shelby's ruling.
Thompson says he's received the clarifications he'd been seeking.
Utah County was one of a handful that had been refusing licenses to gay couples even after Shelby ruled Friday that a ban was unconstitutional.
The Utah attorney general's office warned counties they could be held in contempt of federal court if they refused to issue the licenses.
