USA, Arkansas: Supreme Court Gives Plaintiffs One Day to Respond to New Stay Request

Written by scott on May 16th, 2014

ArkansasThings are humming along in Arkansas – the State Supreme Court gave plaintiffs a 2 PM Friday deadline to respond to a request for a stay of Judge Piazza’s new order.

LGBTQ Nation reports:

Arkansas’ highest court has moved up its deadline for a group of same-sex couples to respond to a bid to halt a judge’s ruling that struck down the state’s gay marriage ban. The Arkansas Supreme Court gave attorneys for the group of gay couples challenging the ban until 2 p.m. Friday to respond to the motion for a stay of Pulaski County Circuit Judge Chris Piazza’s ruling striking down all measures preventing gay couples from marrying. The court had initially given the attorneys until Monday at noon to respond. It was unclear how quickly justices would act.

LGBTQ Nation also published a great primer on where we are in Arkansas.

Could the new date mean the Court is planning to issue a stay as early as Friday afternoon?
