ASHLAND, Ky. (WTVQ) — Court resumed at 3 p.m., on the case against Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis, regarding her two-month refusal to issue marriage licenses.
Five out of the six deputy clerks who served under Kim Davis have agreed to begin issuing licenses again – to all couples – regardless of any personal beliefs on the matter.
The final deputy clerk still refusing is Kim Davis’s own son.
The Judge said that, if Davis agreed to allow her deputy clerks to issue marriage licenses without interference, she would be “Purged of Contempt” – no longer held in contempt of court.
Davis was brought back into court at 3:30 p.m., and presented her options.
She was sued by four couples for refusing to issue them marriage licenses, and despite a judge ordering her to resume issuing them, still refused. Thus, she was ordered to appear before a federal judge for contempt of court.
