Ty Wright/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) says the Rowan County, Kentucky clerk’s office failed to comply with previous orders from a district court to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
The ACLU said it filed a motion in Kentucky District Court.
“The motion argues that the significant alteration of licenses at the directrion of Ms. Davis – having a deputy sign them as a notary public rather than as a deputy clerk, removing any reference to the Rowan County clerk’s office, and stating that they are issued pursuant to court order – violates the court’s September 3 order directing Ms. Davis and her deputies to issue licenses and its September 8 order that released Ms. Davis from jail under the condintion that she not interfere with the process,” according to a press release from the ACLU.
Kim Davis’ attorneys responded saying, “Kim Davis has made a good faith effort to comply with the court’s order and has not prevented the issuance of marriage licenses by Deputy Clerks.”
Liberty Counsel plans to file a reply to the ACLU’s motion.
