Group has other priority on marriage ban

A group that's fighting the state's ban on gay marriage is focusing on a different battle.

Fair Wisconsin is defending the domestic partner registry, in a state lawsuit.

Executive director Katie Boulanger says while they're awaiting the state Supreme Court's decision, they haven't had a chance to think about filing a challenge in federal court. The ACLU did that yesterday, on behalf of four same-sex couples.

Boulanger says they are following the developments across the country, though. She says there are about 40 federal lawsuits that are currently in the court system.

The ACLU argues that the state's gay marriage ban violates the federal constitution.
