Posted: Updated:

MADISON (WKOW) --- Madison Mayor Paul Soglin issued a statement regarding U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb’s ruling on same-sex marriage.

"I join hundreds of thousands of Wisconsinites in applauding Judge Barbara Crabb’s ruling today and am delighted that same sex couples will now be able to have their families and love legally recognized in matrimony.

I absolutely agree with Judge Crabb who states, “Quite simply, this case is about liberty and equality, the two cornerstones of the rights protected by the United States Constitution."
