“In order to be in full compliance with the law, we urge you to take immediate action to ensure that all Justices of the Peace begin issuing marriage licenses to all eligible couples immediately," HRC’s Legal Director Sarah Warbelow wrote in the letter. "Delaying the issuance of marriage licenses to same-sex couples is not only unlawful, but allows the discriminatory impacts of an unconstitutional law to continue.”

The letter went to officials in Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi,Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, Tennessee, Texas and Alabama.
