AR Supreme Court Stops Gay Marriages

Gay Marriage

(Little Rock, AR) The Arkansas Supreme Court has stopped the issuance of marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

The court granted a request to put a stay on a decision by Pulaski County Circuit Judge Chris Piazza.

His decision last week overturned a 2004 constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman.

More than 450 same-sex couples received Arkansas marriage licenses since that decision last week.

Yesterday, Piazza expanded his decision to strike any state law that stopped same-sex marriage.

Attorney General Dustin McDaniel and four counties named in the lawsuit had asked the high court to suspend Piazza’s decision while it’s on appeal.
