Appeal from marriage license rejection denied.
The City Clerk preliminarily denied a marriage license application based upon its discovery that four prior marriage licenses had been issued in New York City in 1985, 1992 and 1994 to a woman with the same name, date of birth and birthplace as the applicant. The applicant appealed and at her OATH hearing she denied that she was ever married before. She tried to establish that she was living in Puerto Rico at the time the four marriages occurred and she accused her identical twin sister, now deceased, of using her identity to marry for financial gain.
