Arkansas Supreme Court Wants Response to Stay Request on Gay Marriage Ruling By Tomorrow

Arkansas sc

The Arkansas Supreme Court has responded to Attorney General Dustin McDaniel’s request for a stay of Judge Chris Piazza’s ruling overturning the state’s ban on gay marriage by giving plaintiffs until noon tomorrow to respond.

The Arkansas Times paper adds that it’s unclear how quickly the Supreme Court will rule. It normally issues opinions on Thursdays, but in extraordinary cases sometimes issues them immediately.

Dozens of same-sex marriage licenses have been issued today at the Pulaski County Courthouse in Little Rock today and also at the Washington County courthouse in Fayetteville.

    That's it, only dozens, boy they are really playing that number down huh? I read elsewhere it was hundreds that tied the knot.

  2. Interesting and kind of surprising that the ASC did not immediately order a stay.

  3. Well, it's really out of their hands now, but nice of them to show concern.
