Wisconsin

Days after a federal judge struck down Wisconsin’s ban on same-sex marriages on Friday, June 6, hundreds of couples married in Milwaukee and Madison over the weekend. The new judgment prompted court officials to perform ceremonies as early as 5 p.m. on Friday, but according to Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen marriage licenses were awarded pre-maturely. Van Hollen asked the federal 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago on Monday, June 9, to discontinue issuing licenses.
