Denver: Trial for same-sex protesters delayed

DENVER, Colorado ” The trial for a same-sex couple who refused to leave the Denver clerk and recorder’s office after they were denied a marriage license has been postponed until May 6.

Kate Burns and Sheila Schroeder of Englewood have pleaded not guilty to the charge stemming from the Sept. 24 incident.

Both refused to leave the clerk and recorder’s office, though it was closing.

The couple contended they should be entitled to all the federal benefits of a heterosexual married couple.

Denver County Court Judge James B. Breese said he had other trials that had priority.
