BREAKING: Arkansas Supreme Court Rejects Stay On Marriage Equality, Same-Sex Marriages May Continue!
Looks like marriage equality is here to stay in Arkansas. State Attorney General Dustin McDaniel claimed that Friday's ruling in favor of marriage equality in the state caused "pervasive" confusion. "Confusion is pervasive, and this court should exercise its superintending authority over circuit courts to issue a stay," he said. Moments ago, however, the Arkansas Supreme Court refused to approve the stay, allowing marriage equality to continue!
The Arkansas Supreme Court rejected the state attorney general's request Wednesday for a stay of a judge's ruling that overturned Arkansas' constitutional ban on gay marriage.
The high court turned down the request from Attorney General Dustin McDaniel that would have halted the issuance of same-sex marriage licenses.
About 400 couples have tied the knot so far in Arkansas, inspiring today's cover of the Arkansas Times (above).
