Arkansas Officials Ask Judge To Keep Marriage Ban In Place

Arkansas officials are asking a federal judge to reject an effort to strike down the state's gay marriage ban, arguing the prohibition is constitutional and serves a legitimate state interest.

The attorney general's office on Wednesday asked U.S. District Judge Kristine Baker to deny the motion for summary judgment filed by two same-sex couples challenging the ban. The couples earlier this month asked Baker to find a 2004 constitutional amendment and any related laws barring gay marriage unconstitutional. The couples sued the state over the ban last year.
