MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin's attorney general asked Federal Judge Barbara Crabb Wednesday to act quickly to issue her final ruling on the state's gay marriage ban.

Crabb ruled last Friday that the ban is unconstitutional, but she gave more time to the major plaintiff in the case to suggest what exactly should be in her final order.

Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen told the judge that the ACLU's request is overly broad. The Republican Van Hollen says he wants the judge to issue her final ruling without any more hearings or arguments.

He also urged Crabb again to put her decision on hold, so the gay marriage ban can go back into place while he appeals the judge's decision.

The ACLU filed suit against the state's 2006 gay marriage ban on behalf of 8 same-sex couples.
