Reluctant Kentucky clerk gets time for gay marriage appeal

A Kentucky county clerk who objects to same-sex marriage will not have to issue marriage licenses while she takes her case to a federal appeals court.
    
Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis is being sued by two gay couples. U.S. District Judge David Bunning ordered Davis last week to issue the licenses despite her objections.
    
On Monday, he granted her request to stay his decision while she pursues her case before the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
    
Davis has refused to grant marriage license to anyone in Rowan County since the U.S. Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage nationwide.
