COLORADO (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Another county clerk in Colorado is getting ready to issue marriage licenses to gay couples despite the state's ban still in effect.

Pueblo County Clerk Gilbert Ortiz says he will begin giving out those licenses Friday morning.

A Colorado judge ruled Thursday that same-sex couples can continue to get married in the state, even though the states gay marriage ban is still in effect.

Following the ruling, Denver's County Clerk began issuing licenses immediately.

"I wanted to get married. Every little girl dreams of getting married. I would put on my fancy dress, but I didn't imagine it would be quite like this," said Anna Simon.

Right now, it's unclear what legal weight the licenses will carry or how long they will be valid.

The state's attorney general says he plans to block the issuing of licenses by going to the Colorado Supreme Court as soon as possible.
