Kentucky clerk Kim Davis loses latest gay marriage appeal

Kentucky County Clerk Kim Davis has lost another bid to delay issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
    
The Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on Thursday denied her latest request for a reprieve.
    
Davis stopped issuing marriage licenses after the U.S. Supreme Court effectively legalized gay marriage in June. Four couples sued her, and U.S. District Judge David Bunning then ordered her to issue the licenses. He later clarified his order to include all couples, not just the four who filed suit.
    
Davis’ attorneys have appealed that expanded order several times, arguing that the mandate to issue licenses should apply only to the four couples who filed suit. They received licenses during Davis’ five-day stint in jail for defying the court’s order.
    
The appeals court again rejected Davis’ request Thursday.
