Suthers’ office filed a motion with the Colorado Supreme Court on Monday asking it to order clerk Hillary Hall to stop providing the licenses.

Both the Colorado Court of Appeals and a state judge in Boulder have refused Suthers’ previous requests to stop the licenses from being issued to gay couples in Boulder, the only Colorado county where they can now get them.

“I think the least harmful and most sensible solution is to continue to issue marriage licenses in order to avoid more potential civil rights violations,” Hall said Monday, calling same-sex marriage a fundamental right. She added that she would respect whatever the Supreme Court decides.
