Cela Rorex, county clerk in Boulder County, Colorado, issues marriage licenses to six same-sex couples. District Attorney William C. Wise had told her that the state's gender-neutral language did not specifically forbid gay marriages.

Both Rorex and Wise become the targets of extensive abuse and harassment and the state attorney general puts a halt to the activity. Some couples sue, but all lose in court.
