LeFlore And Sequoyah Counties Not Releasing Same-Sex Marriage Licenses
OKLAHOMA (KFSM) – Court clerks in two Oklahoma counties have decided not to issue same-sex marriage licenses following a ruling from the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals finding Oklahoma’s ban on gay marriages unconstitutional, according to officials.
Officials in court clerk offices within both LeFlore and Sequoyah county told 5NEWS they had no plans to being issuing same-sex marriage licenses.
The reason behind their decision was that the appeals court issued a stay on its ruling pending an appeal. As a result, neither county will issue marriages licenses to gay couples, officials said.
