    Arkansas Judge Will Rule re: Marriage Case

    Arkansas' Pulaski Circuit Judge Chris Piazza will take one more week to rule on the state's marriage case Wright v. State of Arkansas.

    Judge Piazza previously struck down the state's adoption ban, which was affirmed by the state supreme court.

    The new self imposed deadline is next Friday, May 9.

    Here's hoping he does the right thing again.

    It'll be interesting to see if the ruling is stayed on appeal, since it's going through the state and not federal court systems (even though it does raise federal questions).

    It used to be that appeal from a state court to the US Supreme Court was a matter of right. In accordance with its lazy trend over the last fifty years that is no longer the case.

    Perhaps it is taking him longer than expected. Who knows? In such a case where the ruling is turned around in a week or so, it is likely most of it was already composed before oral arguments.

    Cliffhanger.

    Drama.

    Builds the suspense.

    Lawyers and all of us buy more snacks awaiting the outcome and the ratings go up.

    It had better not be one of those 'dream sequence' endings though.

    Wright v. Arkansas is our fifth oldest open marriage case, and the first one filed after Windsor was decided. If the judge were really in a hurry he would have ruled even earlier, but actually he is still doing this rather quickly. Most cases take a year in a court of first instance, and it has been just 10 months since filing.

    Protecting the record I'm sure. This is certain to go to the Supreme Court of Arkansas, which is socially liberal, and then an appeal to the US Supreme Court, both of which will add considerable time if a stay is granted. However, there is a chance that Arkansas could be the first Bible Belt state to grant same sex marriage licenses should a ruling become effective before SCOTUS mandates it.

    I don't think state supreme court ruling can be appealed like that? Otherwise, MA and IA would've been appealed.

    Those states were won by state constitutional determination. Idaho has an amendment that makes that impossible The argument is thus a federal question.

    Agreed. Honestly I think they may not even stay the district court decision, given how liberal they tend to be.

    A decision is expected any moment. If in our favor as many expect it to be, chances are that it will be late this afternoon after the high court closes for business to give couples a chance to marry over the weekend, which Judge Friedman did for Michigan.

    Re: Arkansas Judge Will Rule re: Marriage Case

    The drama will unfold in coming days, but Eureka Springs has office hours on Saturday. It is unknown if the Carroll County clerk intends to issue licenses tomorrow. It is a small town near the border with Missouri, and being so late there might not be more information until the morning. Legally the district courthouse cannot refuse a license. In Utah there were a few counties that initially resisted, as was to be expected, before being threatened with lawsuits and the county attorneys advised them to proceed. The Carroll County clerk risks a civil rights lawsuit if she refuses, but we'll see.

    Unless a higher court actually overturns the decision, I'm sure the federal govt will recognize marriages that take place before any stay is issued.

    All I can think of is that the AG must be covering himself in case he decides to run for another office later; however, I think he's na´ve if he thinks that defending the law won't hide the fact that he's officially "against" it.

    Re: Arkansas Judge Will Rule re: Marriage Case

    After some confusion (couples in line were initially told the office wouldn't be opening and to leave), the first license was issued in Eureka Springs just moments ago!

    Arkansas clerk issues 1st gay marriage license

    Carroll County Deputy Clerk Jane Osborn issued a license Saturday morning to Kristin Seaton, 27, and Jennifer Rambo, 26, of Fort Smith. They had slept in a Ford Focus after arriving in Eureka Springs at 2 a.m. Saturday and were the first of about 10 couples to line up outside of the courthouse before it opened.

    The first deputy to arrive at the courthouse refused to issue licenses, citing the absence of the county clerk to give permission, and then used the lame excuse of wanting the attorney general's opinion. Note that Carroll County has two seats, and the main clerk's office is in Berryville, so the first one was obviously a lie. Anyway, I'm not surprised at all. We have seen such excuses before. Police then arrived to "disperse" the crowd. The second deputy, Jane Osborne, then arrived and happily issued licenses.

    http://thenewcivilrightsmovement.com...14/05/10/87093

    There will also be a conference call at 2 p.m. today by the Association of Counties to discuss the ruling. This is Arkansas, and there are plenty of bigots out there. They know they cannot outright refuse, so there will be subtle attempts to try, e.g. lame excuses. We will find out soon enough what they intend to do.

    Arkansas is the first "true" southern state to issue gay marriage licenses.

    Although Maryland and Delaware are "officially" southern according to the US Census Bureau, Arkansas is the first state which was part of the old Confederacy to issue such licenses.

    Re: Arkansas Judge Will Rule re: Marriage Case

    Chances are we will see quite a bit of stalling and playing dumb tomorrow. The head of the counties association was quite coy.

    Piazza's lack of a stay caused confusion among county clerks, Association of Arkansas Counties executive director Chris Villines said.

    "The court didn't give us any time to get the kinks worked out," Villines said.

    Villines said after a conference call with county clerks from around the state he wasn't sure how many counties would being issuing same-sex marriage licenses Monday. Villines said county officials around the state were dismayed with the timing of Piazza's decision and that he didn't stay the ruling.

    And one of the counties' attorneys was also coy,

    Jason Owens, an attorney for four of the six counties named in the lawsuit over the gay marriage ban, said he'll ask Piazza on Monday for guidance on how to proceed.

    "My clients want to follow the law. We just want to know what the law is, essentially," Owens said.
    The law is you cannot refuse a license. It's really that simple.

    To try and be fair to the clerks, as I understand it, technically the judge's order only applied to six counties, so the other clerks may, indeed, need clarification.

    Judge Piazza's opinion has a nice statement at the end, which bears repeating here.

    It has been over forty years since Mildred Loving was given the right to marry the person of her choice. The hatred and fears have long since vanished and she and her husband lived full lives together; so it will be for the same-sex couples. It is time to let that beacon of freedom shine brighter on all our brothers and sisters. We will be stronger for it.

    Maybe he has nobody he wants to marry. I know it's not plausible, but stranger things and all that...

    GREAT to see such a development in the "true South" - though Arkansas, in recent years, has not seemed to be as infected by "Tea Party Crazy" as most of the South.

    I always thought he was from somewhere in southwest Missouri? Maybe around Butler or Nevada (nuh-VAY-dah) or something?

    Actually he's personally for it, but officially defending the law.

Police then arrived to "disperse" the crowd. The second deputy, Jane Osborne, then arrived and happily issued licenses.

    Liberty magazine once had an excellent report on how police were stymied in a situation just like this, where people had gathered due to a court ruling some wanted to take advantage of. Someone in the group had printed out copies of the First Amendment with the words protecting the right to peaceably assemble highlighted, in the form of a "gathering permit". Cops conferred, and apparently decided none of them was willing to be the one named in a lawsuit....

    It just reminds me that our police are sorely lacking in training essential for understanding their jobs: the rights of citizens. No officer who understands his job would ever make an attempt to "disperse" a peaceful crowd.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    We are just speculating on what they will do.

    Faulkner County has announced it will not issue licenses citing the clerk's belief that circuit judges cannot enjoin the whole state, which is not true.

    I expect three things to happen, 1) some offices will gladly issue licenses, 2) some counties will cite excuses, and 3) some will just close. Now to find out in what proportions. Some counties with anti-gay clerks and attorneys will try to slyly manufacture the "confusion" in order to substantiate a stay in a sort of I-told-you-so if you will.

    Of course if a stay is granted then that's that obviously.

    You are right. I remember now that he is from mizzoorah.

    don't rightly know why I thought he was from Arkanzazz.

    Is there anyone on JUB from AK? It would be interesting to have their take on the reaction in the state to this crack in the Bible Belt opposition to legalizing sodomitical marriage.
