MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Attorneys for the American Civil Liberties Union in Wisconsin are looking at whether to file lawsuits on behalf of same-sex couples who got married after a federal judge struck down the state's ban on gay marriages.

ACLU spokeswoman Molly Collins said Tuesday no decision has been made yet on the next step to ensure those marriages are recognized as legal, even though the ruling striking down the ban is on hold.

U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb ruled June 6 that the state's gay marriage ban violated the Constitution, leading to more than 500 same-sex couples getting married in a week before Crabb put her decision on hold.

Similar questions have been raised in Utah and Michigan, where there were also brief periods where gay couples were able to get married.
