ACLU Agrees not to Seek Gay Marriage Injunction in Wis.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) - The plaintiffs in a lawsuit have agreed not to ask for a temporary halt to enforcement of Wisconsin's ban on gay marriage. Instead, they're asking a federal judge to issue a quick decision on the overall case.

The American Civil Liberties Union is following the recommendation of U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb. Last week she cited the flurry of lawsuits around the country in which judges have halted enforcement of bans on same-sex marriage only to have those injunctions immediately overturned.

The Wisconsin State Journal reports (http://bit.ly/NYGIt6 ) the ACLU, which is suing on behalf of eight gay couples, decided Tuesday to withdraw its request for a temporary injunction after district attorneys in Milwaukee and Eau Claire counties agreed not to prosecute two couples who recently got married in Minnesota.
