As of Tuesday morning the Sequoyah County Court Clerk cannot issue same-sex marriage licenses because the computer program that prints the license must be updated. Vicki Beaty said Tuesday afternoon that the program is not printing the licenses correctly. "Some adjustments need to be made," Beaty said. "They are having to tweak the computer program." Beaty said she was given the go-ahead by District Attorney Brian Kuester, to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. "He is our legal advisor," Beaty stated. "He said he could not tell us whether to issue licenses or not, but he advised us to follow the law." The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday refused to take on same-sex marriage opposition appeals, thereby opening the door for same-sex couples to marry. The case was for five states, including Oklahoma, and several Oklahoma counties began issuing the licenses on Monday. By Sally Maxwell, Senior News Director
