Two Santa Fe men who want to marry are asking a judge to order the county clerk to let them.
Alex Hanna and Yon Hudson tried to apply for a marriage license Thursday afternoon from Santa Fe County Clerk Geraldine Salazar, who refused their request. Accompanied by their attorneys, the men then walked down Grant Avenue to the law firm of Egolf + Ferlic + Day, where a petition for a writ of mandamus was electronically submitted to the First Judicial District Court.
