MILWAUKEE (AP) — Gay couples are continuing to marry in Wisconsin after a federal judge delayed acting on the state attorney general's request for her to halt the ceremonies.

U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb's Friday decision declaring Wisconsin's ban on gay marriage unconstitutional has confused some county clerks because she did not order counties to begin issuing licenses.

Instead, Crabb asked the ACLU to tell her exactly what it wanted her to block in the gay marriage law. Crabb said Monday she'll schedule a hearing once the ACLU responds.

Some county clerks have decided to begin issuing licenses anyway; others say they are waiting until they receive an order from the court or state.

Republican Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen has appealed Crabb's decision to the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
