The county clerk — jailed less than a week ago in Kentucky for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples — has been ordered released. But her court fight is far from over.
FOX News Radio’s Gurnal Scott reports:
U.S. District Judge David Bunning did lift the contempt order, but there are conditions.
Davis cannot interfere with the five Rowan County Deputy Clerks that are issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Those five clerks have been directed to report to the court every two weeks — telling the Judge if Davis is indeed staying away.
Davis’ attorney still has a filing before the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals requesting that the state of Kentucky allow Davis back on the job — able to assert her “religious convictions”. There is no ruling on that yet.
