An Argentine judge has overturned a ruling that would have allowed the first gay marriage in Latin America.

The official court Web site says national judge Marta Gomez Alsina ordered the wedding blocked until the issue can be resolved by the Supreme Court.

Jose Maria Di Bello and his partner Alex Freyre have been planning to wed on Tuesday, based on another judge's ruling. Their attorney says they'll still try to go ahead with the ceremony because they weren't told of Monday's ruling.

Attorney Maria Rachid argues that the new ruling should not overturn the original decision to let them wed.
