And it continues…..
Plaintiffs in a lawsuit against a Kentucky county clerk who refuses to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples filed a motion Monday evening arguing that she is once again violating a federal court’s orders and asking a judge to enforce them.
Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis, who objects to same-sex marriage on religious grounds, spent five days in jail earlier this month for repeatedly defying U.S. District Judge David Bunning’s order to issue licenses to all qualified couples, gay or straight.
The judge then secured a commitment from five of her deputy clerks to issue licenses in her absence. Once he was satisfied that his order was being implemented, he released Ms. Davis from jail on Sept. 8 and instructed her not to interfere with her deputies’ work.
