State late on fee for same-sex marriage ruling appeal

Posted By on Tue, Jan 27, 2015 at 6:49 AM

The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Monday that the state of Arkansas should show cause why its appeal of the same-sex marriage ban ruling should not be dismissed  for failure to pay a $505 docketing fee.

The fee was set Jan. 7 and due Jan. 21. Attorney General Leslie Rutledge said yesterday the failure to file the fee was due to a clerical error. The state has 14 days to file a motion persuading the court to maintain the appeal.

Baker invalidated the state's ban and the state has appealed. A separate case in which Judge Chris Piazza invalidated the ruling also pends before the Arkansas Supreme Court.

The state has paid up, by the way.

    Watching the Charlottesville spectacle from halfway across the country, I confess that my first instinct was to raillery. Vanilla ISIS, somebody called this mob of would-be Nazis.
