No more marriages will be performed between same-sex couples in Arkansas as counties seek clarity after a state Supreme Court ruling.

Two counties that had been issuing gay marriage licenses said Wednesday that they would stop.

The move comes after the Arkansas Supreme Court on Wednesday rejected the state's request to put on hold a ruling that overturned Arkansas' ban on gay marriage.

However, justices offered no direction to the state's county clerks, some of whom sought clarity after Pulaski County Circuit Judge Chris Piazza found the 10-year-old ban unconstitutional last week. The court said simply that a law banning licenses for same-sex couples remains in place.
