MOREHEAD, KY (AP) - The Supreme Court ruled against a defiant clerk who has refused to hand out marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Despite that ruling, Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis still refused a couple on Tuesday morning, the AP reports.
On Tuesday morning, as Rowan County clerk Kim Davis' office opened, two couples were denied licenses.
A deputy clerk told April Miller and Karen Roberts, who walked into the office trailed by dozens of television cameras, that no licenses would be issued and refused to make Davis available.
The court rejected Davis' last-ditch appeal for a delay in her case Monday. Continuing to refuse them puts her at risk of being fined or even possibly jailed.
