MADISON, Wis. - The
American Civil Liberties Union has asked a federal judge to issue a preliminary
injunction blocking Wisconsin's gay marriage ban while the organization's
lawsuit challenging the prohibition continues.




The ACLU filed a
lawsuit Feb. 3 arguing the ban is unconstitutional.



The organization filed
a motion Thursday with U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb seeking a preliminary
injunction that would essentially invalidate the ban until the lawsuit is
decided. In a brief accompanying the motion the ACLU argued they're entitled to
a preliminary injunction because they'll likely win the lawsuit and the ban imposes
irreparable harm on same-sex couples.



A spokeswoman for the
state Justice Department, which is defending the ban, said the agency will
respond in court. A hearing has been set for March 27.
