Kim Davis to be released from jail

kimdavis-jailOn Tuesday, U.S. District Judge David Bunning issued an order releasing Kim Davis, the Kentucky county clerk jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to gay couples.

“After remanding Defendant Davis to the custody of the U.S. Marshal, five of her six deputy clerks stated under oath that they would comply with the Court’s Order and issue marriage licenses to all legally eligible couples,” the judge’s order said.

“On September 8, 2015, Plaintiffs filed a Status Report at the Court’s behest. According to the Report, Plaintiffs have obtained marriage licenses from the Rowan County Clerk’s Office,” the order said. “The Court is therefore satisfied that the clerk’s office is fulfilling its obligation to issue marriage licenses to all legally eligible couples.”

But, the judge added, Davis could face further sanctions if she “interferes” with the issuance of licenses.

“If Defendant Davis should interfere in any way with their issuance, that will be considered a violation of this Order and appropriate sanctions will be considered,” Bunning said in his order.

NPR added:

Bunning has also asked Davis’ deputy clerks to issue a status report every 14 days that details their compliance with his orders.

Bunning’s order comes just hours before a huge rally was scheduled.

GOP presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz are scheduled to attend the rally in front of the Carter County Detention Center in Grayson, Ky.
