SALT LAKE CITY — Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes has advised county clerks throughout the state to recognize all legally performed same-sex marriages starting Monday.

Same-sex marriage is once again legal in Utah, after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear the state’s appeal.

By declining to hear the petitions, the lower court rulings stand. The 10th Circuit Court has also finalized its order and is lifting its stay on the Kitchen v. Herbert case.

Reyes asked county clerks to make adjustments to any forms or other processes as appropriate.

“We appreciate the dedicated service you render to the citizens of your counties and hope that you will encourage your team to make sure that the transition in the application of our laws occurs as smoothly and professionally as possible,” Reyes said in his statement.
