ARKANSAS: Marriage Ruling In One Week

An Arkansas judge said yesterday that he will issue his marriage equality ruling by next Friday at the latest. Via the Washington Blade:
In a notice dated May 1 to attorneys in the case, Summer McCoy, a law clerk for the Pulaski County Circuit Court, says Judge Chris Piazza will take an addition week to consider the issue, then make a decision. “Judge Piazza has asked me to notify you that he would like to take an additional week to consider the case law, briefs of parties, and arguments of counsel,” McCoy writes. “He feels confident that he will have a ruling for the parties no later than Friday, May 9th.” The clerk doesn’t say whether the judge is inclined to rule one way or another on marriage equality when he makes his decision.
There are two marriage cases pending in the state. This one is Wright Vs Arkansas.
