KENTUCKY: Anti-Gay County Clerk Kim Davis Demands Extension On Temporary Stay Due To Dissolve On Monday
UPDATE: Appeal Has Also Been Filed With SCOTUS

Four-times-married alleged dog-napping conspirator Kim Davis has demanded an extension on the temporary stay order due to dissolve on Monday, August 31st. The demand states that Davis has filed a separate stay demand to the Supreme Court, but we’ve not yet seen that. Equality Case Files has the extension demand:

This Court granted Davis a temporary stay of the Injunction Order through August 31, 2015. (Docs. 52, 55.) The Court’s reason for granting the temporary stay was “deference to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals . . . to give the appellate court an opportunity to review, on an expedited basis,” Davis’ request for a stay pending appeal. (Doc. 55 at 1.) The Sixth Circuit entered an order denying Davis’ motion for stay pending appeal by Order dated August 26, 2015. (6th Cir. Case No. 15-5880, Doc. 28-1.) Davis filed today, however, in the Supreme Court of the United States, an emergency application to stay the Injunction Order. Accordingly, Davis now requests that this Court extend the same deference to the Supreme Court, to give the Supreme Court an opportunity to review and finally decide Davis’ emergency application for stay. WHEREFORE, defendant/Third-Party Plaintiff Kim Davis respectfully requests that this Court extend the temporary stay of the Injunction Order pending the Supreme Court’s final disposition of her emergency application for a stay pending appeal, by the form of the proposed order attached hereto.

I’ll update this post when we get the SCOTUS stay demand.

UPDATE: Here it is. An excerpt:

Davis, a devout Christian, has faithfully and devotedly served the public in the Rowan County clerk’s office for nearly thirty years. She is one of 120 Kentucky County Clerks, and oversees one of approximately 137 marriage licensing locations spread throughout Kentucky. No marriage license can be issued from her office without her authorization and without her personally affixing thereto her name and endorsement. She has never once raised a religious conscience objection to performing a function in the county clerk’s office, until now. On June 26, 2015, immediately following this Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, 135 S.Ct. 2584 (2015), the Kentucky Governor (a named party to that consolidated litigation) issued a directive (the “SSM Mandate”) ordering all Kentucky County Clerks to authorize same-sex “marriage” (“SSM”) licenses, without exception. But Davis’ conscience forbids her from approving a SSM license—because the prescribed form mandates that she authorize the proposed union and issue a license bearing her own name and imprimatur. She holds an undisputed sincerely-held religious belief that marriage is a union between a man and a woman, only. Thus, in her belief, SSM is not, in fact, marriage.
