LOS ALAMOS, N.M. -- The Los Alamos County clerk announced Tuesday she is going to appeal a judge's ruling to issue same-sex marriage licenses.

Sharon Stover was ordered by a judge last week to either start issuing licenses to gay couples or appear in court to fight the ruling.

According to the Los Alamos Monitor, Stover said she needed time to review legal documents before she made a decision.

Los Alamos County would be the seventh county to issue marriage license to gay couples. Doña Ana County started the movement two weeks ago, followed by Valencia, Bernalillo, Santa Fe and San Miguel counties.

The appeal hearing is scheduled for Wednesday at 10 a.m.

Doa Ana County became the first to issue marriage licenses to gay couples.
