Wisconsin’s ban on gay marriage has been struck down by a federal judge.
“Because my review of that law convinces me that plaintiffs are entitled to the same treatment as any heterosexual couple, I conclude that the Wisconsin laws banning marriage between same-sex couples are unconstitutional,” U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb wrote in her ruling.
This is the 14th federal ruling against state marriage bans since last June, when the Supreme Court ruled the federal Defense of Marriage Act was unconstitutional.
