Lawyers: Kim Davis Altered Marriage Licenses

Attorneys representing several couples in Rowan County, Kentucky, allege that County Clerk Kim Davis has “interfered with the issuance of marriage forms,” despite a court order prohibiting her from doing so, according to Kentucky.com. Davis was famously jailed, being held in contempt of court for refusing to issue marriage licenses following the Supreme Court’s decision to make gay marriage legal. According to the court documents, after she was released, Davis instructed clerk deputies to change marriage licenses to have her name removed, the name of the county taken off and for them to be issued on the authority of notaries opposed to county officials. A motion filed by the ACLU asks a judge to force Davis to issue unaltered marriage licenses, like the ones being distributed before she was held in contempt of court.
