(LOS ANGELES) Kim Davis, the Kentucky County Clerk who has been on a religous freedom ride in denying same-sex couples (and all couples) licenses in Rowan County is finally at the end of the road.
Yesterday, the Supreme Court ruled and referred her motion to the district court, which has ruled against her request to continue refusing marriage licenses to same-sex couples. In a report from Rawstory just moments ago, U.S. District Judge David Bunning has summoned Davis and her staff to court on Thursday morning at 11am to explain themselves. Here is an exerpt of the report from Rawstory:
"Lawyers filed a motion Tuesday morning to hold Kentucky’s Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis in contempt of court for refusing to obey the bevy of court orders against her and provide marriage licenses for same-sex couples.
The Lexington Courier-Journal said that Davis’ request for a stay from the U.S. Supreme Court was denied on Monday and yet, the rigidly Christian clerk reported for work on Tuesday and continued to refuse “under God’s authority” to fulfill her duties.
The Associated Press said that Davis and her staff have been ordered by U.S. District Judge David Bunning to appear in federal court on Thursday morning at 11 a.m. to explain themselves."
