Kim Davis Loses Yet Again, Appeals Court Denies Her Request To Have Antigay Record Cleared

by Graham Gremore July 14, 2016

Another loss for Kim Davis.

The infamous Rowan County Clerk dedicated all of last summer to denying same-sex couples their legal right to marry despite the Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality. This summer, she’s spending her time trying to scrub that illegal antigay behavior from her official record.

Last month, Davis’ lawyers filed a motion with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit, where she’s been fighting a contempt order against her for nearly a year, to vacate the ruling and put the whole matter–everything–all of it–including the part when she stood in front of a jailhouse, raised her hands to the sky and declared herself a martyr–to bed.

Well, unfortunately for Team Davis, that won’t be happening.

Yesterday, the court declined her request. The three-judge panel determined that the district court judge’s September contempt ruling against Davis was justified and that Davis’ motion didn’t meet the legal requirements to have it vacated.

Sorry, girl.

The court did, however, throw her a little bone by lifting an August 2015 injunction against her for refusing to issue any marriage certificates that bared her name, but only because the law she broke is being changed. Earlier this year, Kentucky lawmakers passed a bill removing clerks’ names from the state’s official license form. That law will go into effect on Friday.

Despite clearly not winning their case, Davis’ lawyers put out a statement calling the ruling a “final victory” for them.

“The injunctions are gone and Kim Davis received the accommodation that she requested,” Mat Staver, founder and chairman of Liberty Counsel, said. “County clerks are no longer forced to compromise their religious liberty and conscience rights.”

Despite being over and done with, for some reason we don’t think this will be the last we hear from Kim Davis.
