Arkansas Supreme Court To Hear Arguments In Gay Marriage Case
LITTLE ROCK (KFSM) – The Arkansas Supreme Court is scheduled to hear oral arguments in a case challenging the state’s gay marriage ban on Thursday (Nov. 20), officials say.
The oral arguments are scheduled to begin at 9 a.m., according to a spokesperson for the Arkansas Supreme Court.
After arguments end, opinions on the case are typically issued within a few weeks. With this case, an official opinion is expected to come within four or five weeks after arguments end, the spokesperson said.
No photography or recording is allowed in the courtroom while the court is in session, according to the spokesperson.
The Arkansas Family Council has scheduled a rally at the capitol at 11 a.m. on Nov. 19, according to a news release.
Judge Piazza overturned the state’s ban on gay marriage in May, which was followed by a stay issued by the Arkansas Supreme Court a few days after. In July, the Arkansas Supreme Court agreed to take up the same-sex marriage lawsuit.
