Arkansas Supreme Court says Fayetteville cannot issue a city ordinance that is meant to be nondiscriminatory to the LGBT community.

A Fayetteville city ordinance was passed in 2015 that protected the LGBT community by having an anti-discriminatory ordinance.

The Arkansas Supreme Court on Thursday, January 31, 2019, ruled in part “because the circuit court exceeded its jurisdiction on remand, its actions following remand are void.”
