Kentucky clerk again asks for delay on gay-marriage licenses

A Kentucky county clerk who was recently jailed for denying same-sex couples marriage licenses has filed an appeal that would allow her to continue blocking the licenses.
    
Kim Davis filed the motion Friday with the Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals.
    
Davis objects to gay marriage on religious grounds. She argued Friday that all the same-sex couples who sued her for a license received one from her deputies while she was in jail, so her office should not be required to issue them to any more couples once she returns to work.
    
U.S. District Court Judge David Bunning wrote that his mandate to issue licenses applied to all couples, not only those who filed suit. But Davis’ lawyers allege that order was issued improperly, and again have asked for a delay.
