Arkansas state Supreme Court issues stay on marriage equality

At 4:30 p.m. today, with many of the justices at an out-of-state conference, the Arkansas Supreme Court issued a stay of Judge Chris Piazza’s ruling last Friday that Arkansas law and constitutional bans on same-sex marriage violated the U.S. Constitution.

The one-sentence order granted stay without any elaboration.

Piazza’s decision will now go through the appeal process.  The timeline for the state supreme court could very well take several months.
