The Arkansas Supreme Court released its customary Thursday decisions this morning, but no final decisions in major pending cases challenging the state Voter ID law and the qualifications of some judicial candidates. It dealt with some procedural issues on some of those cases and is expected to meet in conference on these expedited matters today.

In an unrelated legal matter, indications appear to be that Circuit Judge Chris Piazza won’t issue his ruling in the challenge of the same-sex marriage ban until Friday.
