    “…some five out of six Wisconsin counties were issuing licenses…”

    Wisconsin has 72 counties. My understanding is that nearly all of them were issuing licenses before Friday’s stay.

      Yes, five out of every six would be nearly all, but not quite all. (I’ve updated to wording to clarify) I didn’t have a final count, but I do recall seeing that the number had crossed sixty.

    I believe the final number was 63 when the stay was issued.

    If the underlined “Herbert” in the quote is meant to be a link, it is not active.

    Also, how does this ruling affect the marriages that were entered into over the last week?

    I found this item to be very confusing and hard to follow – I’m not sure if it’s the way it is written or the judge’s logic/explanation of her decision. Like everything relating to these forward and back rulings – there is little clarity. But this is particularly problematic.

    I do appreciate the succinct and cogent wording of your articles.
    I believe Judge Crabb originally made a mistake: She assumed court clerks and district attorneys were actually still the well-educated and competent professionals of her youth.
    She corrected that mistake in this stay.

    I hope we win this one (I hope we win all of them). It’s about time this nonsense of pretending my country is a far-right ultra-conservative Republican Christian theocracy be stopped.
