Out Boulder, an education and advocacy group for the LGTBQ communities in Boulder, is asking supporters to attend a rally Wednesday morning before a court hearing on the marriage licenses Boulder County Clerk Hillary Hall has issued to same-sex couples.
According to a Facebook post, Out Boulder is asking supporters to show up for the rally outside the Boulder Justice Center, 1777 6th St., at 8 a.m.Wednesday.
The post said that "Wednesday is the day to show our support! Bring your signs and your voices."
Colorado Attorney General John Suthers filed suit last week seeking to prevent Hall from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
Hall started issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples June 25 after a decision by the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that struck down a gay marriage ban in Utah. So far, Hall has issued licenses to more than 100 couples.
The suit was brought after Hall ignored a request by Suthers to stop issuing the licenses and rejected a proposed compromise to jointly ask the Colorado Supreme Court to decide whether she has authority to do so.
A three-hour hearing has been set for 9 a.m. Wednesday by Boulder District Judge Andrew Hartman.
