Placeholder Image
By Scott Bauer Associated Press MADISON - Gov. Scott Walker said Monday that hundreds of same-sex marriages performed in June will be recognized by the state, ending uncertainty for those couples and likely putting a stop to a federal lawsuit filed over the issue. There had been questions over whether those marriages would be legally recognized, since they were performed during a week when the gay marriage ban was blocked only temporarily.
