That took too long.

#1

Post by Chilidog »

Kim Davis — the former clerk in Kentucky whose refusal to sign marriage certificates for same-sex couples grabbed national headlines in 2015 — violated their constitutional rights, a federal judge found.

The decision leaves open the question of whether the former clerk is responsible for the legal fees of the two couples who sued and other monetary damages that have accrued over the nearly seven years of legal back-and-forth.

A jury will decide whether Davis is liable for those fees and other damages, which likely stands around hundreds of thousands of dollars.

There is probably a GoFundMe set up for her (if it hasn't been siphoned off already).

I'm conflicted. Glad it hasn't been thrown out, sad it's been so damn long.

Sad for the taxpayers of Kentucky that they've been stuck with the bill for Davis stringing this out so long. At least they were smart enough to not re-elect her.
