Judge Keeps New Mexico Gay Wedding Ban In Place
by Newscenter Staff

(Albuquerque, New Mexico) A New Mexico judge ruled Wednesday that an injunction preventing the issuing a marriage licenses to same-sex couples will remain in place.

Sandoval County Clerk Victoria Dunlap said she was prepared to resume issuing the licenses after her attorney advised her a temporary injunction obtained the New Mexico Attorney General had expired.

Last weekend, lawyer, Paul Livingston, Sunday told Albuquerque television station KOB that he has advised Dunlap that the court order was "illegally gotten, improper and inappropriate," and that she was in a legal position to resume issuing the licenses.

Lawyers for Attorney General Patricia Madrid disagreed, maintaining it was still in effect.
