According to the Sixth Circuit Court, Kentucky county clerk Kim Davis has “little to no likelihood” of prevailing upon appeal. Equality Case Files has the ruling:
“The injunction operates not against Davis personally, but against the holder of her office of Rowan County Clerk. In light of the binding holding of Obergefell, it cannot be defensibly argued that the holder of the Rowan County Clerk’s office, apart from who personally occupies that office, may decline to act in conformity with the United States Constitution as interpreted by a dispositive holding of the United States Supreme Court. There is thus little or no likelihood that the Clerk in her official capacity will prevail on appeal.”
It’s not yet clear if today’s ruling dissolves the temporary stay issued last week by a lower court. That stay was due to expire on August 31st. It’s expected that the Liberty Counsel will now immediately appeal to SCOTUS.
