Plaintiffs legal fee decision may be put on hold along with gay marriage ruling

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - It could be awhile before we find out if the plaintiffs in Wisconsin's gay marriage lawsuit are entitled to have their legal fees covered by taxpayers.

Federal Judge Barbara Crabb of Madison ruled earlier this month in favor of same-sex couples and the Wisconsin Civil Liberties Union, which claimed that the state's ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional.

However, Crabb put her ruling on hold until the case is done being appealed.

Both sides have filed a request to have Judge Crabb delay her decision on legal fees. They say it makes more sense to see how the issue fares in the appellate courts.
