Update Thursday, 5:30 p.m: On Thursday, Pulaski County Circuit Judge Chris Piazza expanded his ruling against Arkansas's same-sex marriage ban to effectively strike down all the laws in the state barring the issuing of marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
In other words, the way is clear for same-sex marriages to resume in the state. One county has already announced that it would do so, a day after the state Supreme Court upheld a law not addressed in Piazza's original ruling banning county clerks from issuing the licenses. The Supreme Court's decision temporarily halted gay marriages in Arkansas. The state's attorney general has appealed against Piazza's expanded ruling to the state's high court.
As the Los Angeles Times explains, it's still not clear to many in the state whether the rulings apply only to the six counties named in the lawsuit in question, or whether his ruling requires the other 69 counties in the state to issue marriage licenses to gay couples, too. Some county clerks have refused to issue licenses to same-sex couples because the suit didn't specifically name them.
For now, Arkansas at least partially counts as the 18th state in the union to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
