Suit Filed To Block Arkansas Anti-Gay Amendment
by 365Gay.com Newscenter Staff
(Little Rock, Arkansas) The American Civil Liberties Union of Arkansas today filed a legal challenge on behalf of three concerned citizens to the so-called "Amendment Concerning Marriage."
The ballot initiative was certified last month for the November ballot by the Arkansas Secretary of State.
The challenge, which is based on the Arkansas state constitution, maintains that the ballot initiative is misleading to voters and, if passed, could potentially make significant changes to the legal landscape for single Arkansans.
"As a lifelong Arkansan and someone with close family members who are gay, I find this proposed amendment scary and misleading," said Susan May, who, along with her husband Ron, is challenging the initiative.
