Circuit Judge in Arkansas to Hear Challenge to Gay Marriage Ban

Marriage_arkansas

Circuit Judge Chris Piazza is set to hear a case challenging Arkansas' ban on same-sex marriage today at 1 pm in Little Rock, the AP reports:

Late last year, Piazza refused to grant a motion by the state that sought to dismiss the lawsuit, but he also refused to grant a motion by the couples suing, who asked him to block enforcement of the ban. The plaintiffs include 21 same-sex couples and a woman who wants to dissolve her New York marriage to another woman.

  1. I think the correct term is U.S. district court judge. A circuit judge is on an appellate court.

  2. He is not a FEDERAL judge. He is a Circuit Court judge for the state of Arkansas.
