On Monday morning long lines formed early at the Washington County Courthouse in Fayetteville, Arkansas. Justice of the Peace Eva Madison signed the first same-sex marriage license and said the county would be issuing marriage licenses “for all.”
Madison, a shareholder in Littler’s Northwest Arkansas office, said, “Washington County is a party to the Wright lawsuit and therefore bound by Judge Piazza’s ruling allowing same-sex marriages in Arkansas.”
Madison is a proud straight ally and a member of Littler Pride, Littler’s LGBT affinity group. Madison and her fellow Justice of the Peace Candy Clark were at the courthouse Monday morning at 8 a.m. to perform ceremonies and sign marriage licenses.
