'Wisconsin attorney general files to halt same-sex marriages in state'

As expected, Wisconsin AG J.B. Van Hollen has filed with the Seventh Circuit a request for an emergency stay of the decision issued Friday by U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb holding that state's ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional.

Van Hollen's official statement can be found here.

UPDATE: On Monday, Judge Crabb rejected Van Hollen's request for a stay of her decision pending the state's appeal to the Seventh Circuit. Van Hollen has also requested a stay from the Seventh Circuit.
