This has been done before.....here's the article:
Marriage/Civil Unions
Currently in New Mexico, same-sex couples are not issued marriage licenses. In February 2004, one county clerk issued and recorded 64 marriage licenses to same-sex couples. The Supreme Court of New Mexico granted an order restraining that specific county clerk from issuing more licenses to same-sex couples pending the lower court’s resolution of the dispute. The lawsuit to restrain the county clerk was later dismissed without any decision being rendered after that clerk’s term of office ended. As of April 2005, these 64 licenses have not been challenged, nor has any other clerk issued more.

Good.

I like where the Santa Fe mayor said he's tired of waiting for the legislature to act.

Time to force this in the courts since the legislature refuses to move any bill.
