AR Supreme Court Won’t Hear Repeat Arguments in Same-Sex Marriage Case

Around Arkansas
LITTLE ROCK, AR (Arkansas Times) – In unsigned orders today, the Arkansas Supreme Court said it would not hear another round of oral arguments in the appeal of Judge Chris Piazza’s decision invalidating the state bans on same-sex marriage.

Attorney General Leslie Rutledge had asked for a new round of arguments. That was denied without comment in an unsigned “per curiam” order.

The court also denied a request by plaintiffs for an immediate lifting of the stay issued by the Supreme Court to prevent marriages of same-sex couples. That stay was issued after a week in which about 500 couples were married in Arkansas after Piazza’s ruling in May 2015.
