ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — The clerk for New Mexico's most populous county has a supply of new forms ready in case a court orders her to issue licenses for same-sex marriages.
A judge in Albuquerque has scheduled a hearing Monday afternoon on a request by a couple from Pojoaque (poh-WAH'-kay) to have their marriage recognized. Bernalillo (behr-nah-LEE'-yoh) County Clerk Maggie Toulouse Oliver says she's had 1,000 licenses printed.
The hearing was originally scheduled on a motion to force the county to issue Jen Roper, who is dying of cancer, and Angelique Neuman a marriage license. But they got married in Santa Fe Friday after a judge in a different lawsuit ordered the Santa Fe County clerk to issue licenses to gay and lesbian couples.
Also last week, the Dona Ana County clerk began issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
