Pro-Biblical Marriage Clerk Fined $100K
Years after denying a marriage license for a gay couple, Kim Davis has been ordered by a judge to pay $100,000 to the same gay couple.
From Daily Mail. A US federal jury has awarded $100,000 in damages to one of the gay couples who sued a former Kentucky clerk for refusing to grant them a marriage license.
Kim Davis ended up spending five days in jail for turning down the couples’ request in 2015.
District Judge David Bunning awarded $50,000 each to David Ermold and David Moore as damages on September 13. …
Davis, a former Rowan County clerk, believed that marriage should only be between a man and woman.
Bunning last year found her guilty of violating the couples’ constitutional rights.
Bunning said at the time of his ruling that Davis ‘cannot use her own constitutional rights as a shield to violate the constitutional rights of others while performing her duties as an elected official.’ …
Davis’ lawyers, Liberty Counsel, said she planned to appeal the judgement.
‘We look forward to appealing this decision and taking this case to the U.S. Supreme Court,’ they said in a statement. …
The case first drew national media attention after Ermold and Moore showed up at Davis’ office asking for a marriage license with news cameras in tow.
When she refused, Moore questioned what authority Davis had to deny them the right to marry.
‘Under God’s authority,’ she replied. …
She stopped issuing all marriage licenses a day after the Supreme Court legalized gay marriage in 2015 under Obergefell v. Hodges. …
