A U.S. District Judge last week ordered Clerk Kim Davis to resume issuing marriage licenses despite her objections to gay marriage. The ruling by Judge David Bunning was the result of a lawsuit against Davis by four couples who were denied marriage licenses.

UPDATE: The clerk is appealing last week’s ruling to the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals. She also asked for a stay of the judge’s order, which Bunning has effectively granted.
