Davis out of Jail but Not out of the Woods
After five days in jail, Kim Davis was released and went back to work at the Rowan County courthouse. The Kentucky clerk was jailed on September 3 for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Though she was released from jail, she made the decision not to authorize any of the licenses upon her return. This may spark another legal battle, and Judge David L. Bunning will once again be involved in the process. Davis’s deputy clerks began issuing licenses while she was incarcerated, and some feared they would be invalid. However, two women who have been a couple over 20 years came to the courthouse shortly after Davis was removed and didn’t seem to be worried as they left with a license.
