The American Civil Liberties Union filed the lawsuit on behalf of a group of gay couples. They allege the ban is unconstitutional and state law makes it a crime for gay couples who marry out-of-state to return to Wisconsin.
They also argue the ban doesn’t nullify gay marriages performed out of state – it simply doesn’t recognize them – and plaintiff couples who married out-of-state aren’t in danger of being prosecuted.
ACLU attorney John Knight didn’t immediately return a message.
