The judge agreed that the Rowan County Clerk’s Office was fulfilling its obligation to issue marriage licenses and ordered the county clerk released from jail.

The judge ordered Davis not to interfere with the issuance of marriage licenses.

Five of the six deputies in Davis’ office agreed to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples after Davis was jailed, and Bunning ordered them to continue doing so and provide status reports to the court every two weeks.

A rally, featuring Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabeen, in support of Davis was scheduled for Tuesday afternoon at the Carter County Detention Center.
