GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Brown County clerk says she's waiting for guidance from state officials after a judge ruled Wisconsin's ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional.

Clerk Sandy Juno says she first needs guidance from state records officials on how to process such questions as naming a bride and groom on the license.

Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen plans to appeal the ruling and says the state's current ban on same sex marriage remains in place.

Dozens of gay couples got married at courthouses in Milwaukee and Madison Friday and Saturday, taking advantage of what may be a small window before Friday's ruling is possibly overturned.

Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt says the city will respect the decisions made at the county level.
