MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Federal Judge Barbara Crabb said no Monday afternoon to halting same-sex marriages throughout Wisconsin, while her ruling to allow them gets appealed.  

At a hearing in Madison, Crabb said she wanted to hear more from both sides on what the total effects of a stay would be. She said she would consider a stay of her Friday ruling in which she ruled the state's ban on gay marriage was unconstitutional -- but she was not ready to act Monday.

State Justice Department lawyers asked Crabb what should be done about the divisions around the state, in which some are allowing gay marriage and some not. Crabb said it's an issue for the state courts to resolve.

Crabb said the counties which granted same-sex marriage licenses in the wake of her Friday ruling did not act because she said they could. In her words, "That hasn't been decided."

Judge Crabb said that although she struck down the 2006 constitutional ban, she gave no orders to local officials to act on issuing licenses. So in her view, there was nothing to halt.
