LITTLE ROCK â€” Arkansas officials asked a federal judge and the state Supreme Court Wednesday to suspend lawsuits challenging the state's gay marriage ban while a similar case is pending before the nation's highest court.

The AG's office later filed a similar motion before the state Supreme Court, which is also weighing the state's ban.
