Act 1 injunction filed

Posted By on Mon, Jan 5, 2009 at 4:15 PM

The ACLU of Arkansas filed a motion for temporary injunction today in Pulaski circuit court asking that the state be prohibited from using Act 1 to separate children in state care from family members until its challenge of the law has been settled. The ACLU filed suit last week challenging the constitutionality of the new law, which prohibits unmarried couples (read GAY) from fostering or adopting children; director Rita Sklar said part of the motion was under seal but that it would apply to a child facing possible removal from the care of a grandmother.
