Jindal said he was waiting for the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals to reverse that ruling based on the Supreme Court's decision Friday.
As of Sunday afternoon, Louisiana was the only state in the nation that had not issued any marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
"As soon as [the courts] issue their ruling, I suspect it will be a matter of days. I don't know how quickly they will move," Jindal said when asked how soon he will comply with the law.
If you’re keeping score at home, here’s where we stand:
· Words have no meaning;
· The Constitution is irrelevant;
· The First Amendment is under assault; and
· The Tenth Amendment is a relic to be ignored.
“We are very disappointed to announce that as of right now, we are unaware of any Clerks of Court issuing marriage licenses. The Attorney General and the Louisiana Clerks of Court Association have both advised that they do not believe the Supreme Court ruling yet applies to the State of Louisiana as a technical matter. We believe that this advice ignores the clear command of the Supreme Court of the United States, and it is further evidence of the discrimination and continued harm we have fought for more than twenty-six years to correct,” said Chris Otten, chair of the Forum for Equality Louisiana, the organization that filed Louisiana’s same-sex marriage case.
“We are currently exploring all options with our legal team, and we will update you as soon as we have more information. The great news: the question is no longer if Louisiana will get marriage equality; the question is now WHEN. And we will not stop fighting until all sixty-four parishes obtain real equality under the law, as promised by the Supreme Court’s decision today.”
“We hope Gov. Jindal does not continue to be a roadblock on the road to equality that 37 states have already traveled. Louisiana’s same-sex couples have waited long enough, often at considerable expense to protect their relationships and families."
Over a year ago, the City of New Orleans began working on a public project for racial reconciliation. Tomorrow, just a week after the racially motivated attack of an all black church in Charleston left nine people dead, participants of that citywide effort will present the culmination of a year's worth of work to better understand one of the most difficult subjects in American society today: race.
Members of Welcome Table New Orleans, a branch of the William Winters Institute for Racial Reconciliation, will present projects and reflect on the program tomorrow, June 24, at 10 a.m. at the Mahalia Jackson Theatre. The event is free and open to the public, and in addition to presentations by participants, attendees can expect to hear from Mayor Mitch Landrieu, Deputy Mayor of Citywide Initiatives Judy Reese Morse and representatives from the Urban League, the Winters Institute and the Kellogg Foundation, which has helped fund the initiative.

“Our state's employees should not be put in a situation where they can be legally discriminated against or made to feel unsafe, and our state must not support Governor Jindal's campaign against LGBT individuals. We must move our business to places that treat their citizens equally and fairly.”O'Donnell's complete letter to Cuomo is below the cut.
