The year in Summit County ended with some of the biggest news ever, as County Council Member Claudia McMullin noted. Same-sex marriages in Utah were allowed, after a ruling from a U.S. District Court judge. Rick Brough has more.
The Summit County Clerk's office reported late Monday that they had issued 33 licenses for same-sex marriages. That came the same day that a federal judge allowed gay marriage in Utah to Continue. Rick Brough has more.
Park City Mayor Dana Williams has now performed some 25 same-sex marriages at the Summit County Courthouse, as the ruling that declares Utah's ban on gay marriage is declared unconstitutional. Lynn Ware Peek has more.
After two appeals to stay the decision to allow same-sex marriage in Utah were denied in the federal appellate court, the case goes back to Judge Robert Shelby, who already said he won't offer a postponement of his original ruling because the arguments made Monday were the same ones he had already considered in his original ruling from Friday.
Park City Mayor Dana Williams has now performed at least 28 same sex marriages in Summit County since 8 AM this morning.
