Judge rejects latest stay request from Kentucky clerk Davis

Reuters is reporting

A federal judge on Wednesday denied Kim Davis a stay of his order requiring her office to issue marriage licenses to all eligible couples who want one, the latest setback for the Kentucky county clerk who went to jail rather than issue licenses to gay couples.

Lawyers for couples suing Davis have said that since her return to work, the Rowan County clerk has interfered with the issuance of marriage licenses in violation of orders by U.S. District Judge David Bunning's in Louisville.

An attorney for Davis has said she has made a good-faith effort to comply with Bunning's orders. She has said licenses granted by her staff are invalid because she has not given them that authority.

One posted opinion comments (and we agree here at Public Advocate)

"US Supreme Court made a law.
Judicial branch acted as legislative branch.

Federal court is enforcing the legislation.
Judicial branch acting as executive branch.

Clearly, the judicial branch is usurping its authority by assuming the role of the other two branches."
