Gay couples celebrate court decision in Milwaukee

Posted: Updated:

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Gay couples and their supporters are gathering in Milwaukee to celebrate an appeals court decision declaring Wisconsin's ban on gay marriage unconstitutional.

Couples who filed the lawsuit seeking to overturn the ban say they realize it could be a while before the matter is settled since Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen has said he will appeal Thursday's ruling to the U.S. Supreme Court.

But Charvonne Kemp, of Milwaukee, says she is heartened by how fast the case has already moved. She says she was prepared for it to take five to 10 years to get an appeals court decision. Instead, it has taken less than 10 months.
