An official with the Cache County Attorney's office told the Herald Journal that the clerk's office "was closed indefinitely while they review the decision," in reference to a federal judge's Friday ruling that struck down Utah's gay marriage ban as unconstitutional. A statement from the county clerk was forthcoming.

Utah County also decided it would not issue same-sex marriage licenses until state officials issued a legal opinion on Friday's ruling.

The federal judge who ruled the ban unconstitutional was scheduled to consider the state's request to stay the ruling, pending an appeal, at a Monday hearing.

The following press release was posted on the county clerk's office door and issued to local media:
