As a follow-up to my earlier post on the County Clerks’ petition to the New Mexico Supreme Court asking for guidance on whether they may, or may not, issue same-sex marriage licenses, here are the following documents from the case:
1. The Verified Petition for Writ of Superintending Control filed by the New Mexico Association of Counties and by all 33 County Clerks.
2. The Supreme Court’s Order asking that a response be filed by September 23, and setting a hearing on October 23.
Thanks very much to Steven Kopelman, General Counsel of the New Mexico Association of Counties, for sending these to me!
If possible, I will also obtain and post any other briefs that are filed in this case, so check back here after September 23.
