U.S. District Judge David Bunning ruled that since the five days she spent in jail, Rowan County, Ky., County Clerk Kim Davis has upheld his orders to issue marriage licenses.
The ACLU had filed suit to have Davis reissue licenses after Davis removed her name from the county’s marriage licenses. The ACLU wants the county clerk’s name added to those licenses issued since September.
NBC News reports that Bunning ruled the licenses, as issued by Davis, are probably valid under Kentucky law. In December, the state’s Republican governor signed an executive order removing county clerk names from marriage licenses.
