MADISON, Wis. (WXOW) - Statements from several county clerks around the state who were planning on issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples, Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen said he's moving to stop that effort.
In a statement, Van Hollen stated that he'll be filing emergency motions to stay the order issued by Judge Barbara Crabb Friday afternoon.
"The United States Supreme Court, after a referral from Justice Sotomayor, stayed a lower court’s decision striking down Utah’s ban on same-sex marriage. There is no reason to believe the Supreme Court would treat Wisconsin’s ban any differently.”
