Lafayette Parish Clerk Of Court Offering Same-Sex Marriage Licenses
As of 1:30pm Lafayette Parish Clerk of Court Louis Perret says his office is offering same-sex marriage licenses. This comes after the U.S. Supreme Court decision rendered last week allowing same-sex marriages in all fifty states.
Other Acadiana Parish Clerks of Court have affirmed that they will issue licenses but as of this writing nobody had applied for one.
Louisiana had been the only hold-out but the first same-sex marriage license was issued by the Clerk of Court of Jefferson Parish.
