Gay couples line up in Arkansas

An Arkansas clerk has issued the state's first gay marriage license, breaking a barrier that voters put in place with a constitutional amendment a decade ago, according to USA Today.

Carroll County Deputy Clerk Jane Osborn issued a license May 10 to Kristin Seaton and Jennifer Rambo of Fort Smith.

Pulaski County Circuit Judge Chris Piazza ruled May 9 that Arkansas' 2004 voter-approved amendment to the state constitution violates the rights of gay couples, the Associated Press noted. He did not put his ruling on hold, as some judges in other states have done.

Attorney General Dustin McDaniel said he would appeal the ruling and asked it be suspended during that process.
