Arkansas Supreme Court Stays Marriage Equality Ruling

After moving the deadline for lawyers for the plaintiffs to respond to the Attorney General’s motion to stay Judge Chris Piazza’s ruling up to today at 2pm, the Arkansas Supreme Court has decided to stay the ruling pending appeal.

Over 540 couples have obtained marriage licenses in Arkansas over the past week.  The Human Rights Campaign has asked that the Justice Department extend federal recognition to the married couples.
