USA, Arkansas: Eleven Gay Couples Sue for Marriage Equality

Written by scott on July 2nd, 2013

ArkansasIn the wake of the US Supreme Court decision on DOMA, a group of same sex couples is going to court to secure their rights. LGBTQ Nation reports:

A group of 11 same-sex couples from Arkansas on Tuesday asked a judge to overturn the state’s ban on gay marriage, the latest effort aimed at repealing the amendment after recent U.S. Supreme Court rulings supporting gay couples. The lawsuit filed in Pulaski County Circuit Court seeks to strike down the constitutional amendment voters approved in 2004 that defines marriage as between a man and a woman. The amendment also bars the state from recognizing same-sex marriages from other states.

Just days ago, we reported on a ballot initiative being pushed in the state for 2014.
