UPDATE FROM THE OFFICE OF WISCONSIN ATTORNEY GENERAL J.B. VAN HOLLEN IN THE MATTER OF WOLF, ET AL. V. WALKER, ET AL.

 

MADISON — Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen, following today’s ruling from the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago in the matter of Wolf, et al. v. Walker, et al., reminds all state and local officials that the stay issued by U.S. District Court Judge Barbara Crabb on June 13, 2014, remains in effect. This means that Article XIII, Sec. 13 of the Wisconsin Constitution limiting marriage to between one man and one woman as well as all other related state laws are in full force and effect until this case is finally resolved by the United States Supreme Court. The status quo has not changed with today’s ruling. The state defendants will file their appeal petition with the United States Supreme Court in a timely manner.
