An attorney for Brian Mason, the Kentucky deputy clerk that has been issuing marriage licenses to homosexuals in place of Kim Davis, told U.S. District Court Judge David Bunning on Friday that he believes Davis has altered the licenses to a point that they are invalid. As previously reported, after Bunning released Davis from jail on Sept. 8, he demanded that she not interfere with her deputy’s issuance of the licenses and ordered status reports presented to his office every two weeks.
“[C]ounsel for the five deputy clerks who indicated that they would comply with the court’s order shall file a status report every fourteen days from the date of entry of this order unless otherwise excused by the court,” Bunning directed. “Within those reports, Counsel shall report on their clients’ respective compliance with the court’s August 12, 2015 order enjoining the Rowan County Clerk from enforcing her ‘no marriage licenses’ policy, as well as its order of September 3, 2015 requiring them to issue marriage licenses to all eligible couples in compliance with the court’s prior order,” he said.
