Kim Davis loses yet another bid to stall gay-marriage case

The ACLU has asked Bunning to consider penalizing Davis again if she continues to refuse to issue the licenses, including placing her office under a receivership, which would allow another person to oversee the marriage licensing process.

The judge has not yet responded to that request.

Bunning on Wednesday dismissed Davis’ arguments that she is likely to suffer irreparable harm by having to issue the licenses.

“This argument is unpersuasive because Davis has created her own risk of harm by violating a valid order issued by this court,” Bunning wrote, adding: “As for the public interest, the court simply notes that the public has an interest in the enforcement of valid court orders.”
