(Madison, WI) -- Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen is appealing last week's ruling by a federal judge that struck down the state's ban on gay marriage. The Republican A.G. filed for a stay this morning that would force county clerks to stop issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Hundreds of gay couples got married in Wisconsin over the weekend. Van Hollen says he'll continue to defend the constitutionality of the state's traditional marriage laws.
