A clerk in a New Mexico county ordered to start granting marriage licenses to same-sex couples or appeared in court says she will make a decision Tuesday.

The Los Alamos Monitor reports that Los Alamos County Clerk Sharon Stover she will decided by then whether to abide by the judge’s order or seek to stop it.

A judge on Thursday ordered Stover to start granting same-sex marriage licenses or to appear in court next week to explain why that shouldn’t happen.

Stover says she has not had enough time yet to review the documentation officials received with the county attorney.

Los Alamos County would be the seventh New Mexico county to issue such licenses since Dona Ana County began two weeks ago.
