MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- It looks like a federal appeals court won't rule on whether to halt gay marriages in Wisconsin until at least Wednesday. U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb struck down Wisconsin's gay marriage ban Friday in an American Civil Liberties lawsuit. She declared the ban unconstitutional but stopped short of ordering clerks to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. County clerks across the state have started issuing licenses anyway.

ROCK COUNTY (WIFR) -- Nearly a dozen same-sex couples in Rock County now have their marriage licenses.

This comes after a federal ruling Friday that struck down Wisconsin’s ban on gay marriage.

Rock County is one of several in the state granting marriage licenses to same-sex couples starting today.
