Wisconsin gay marriages continue amid court fight

Posted: Updated:
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Gay marriages are continuing in a majority of Wisconsin counties, even as those defending the state's ban are proceeding with legal action that could result in courts ordering the marriages to stop.
   Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen and the American Civil Liberties Union faced a Wednesday deadline to file arguments in the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals on whether it has the authority to act before U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb does.
   While Crabb struck down the ban, she did not issue an order telling the state how to implement her decision.
   The state argues her ruling should be put on hold because it's creating confusion. Some county clerks are not issuing licenses, saying they need more guidance.
