Arkansas to appeal ruling that strikes down ban on same-sex marriage

 | 

Arkansas took center stage in the same-sex marriage debate May 9 when a state judge overturned a 10-year constitutional amendment that banned same-sex unions in the state.

The morning after Pulaski County Circuit Judge Chris Piazza handed down his ruling, the Carroll County Clerk's Office in Eureka Springs began issuing marriage licenses. In all, 15 licenses for same-sex couples were issued. On Monday, couples lined up at courthouses in Pulaski, Washington and Saline counties to get licenses.
