Re: Clerk refuses to issue marriage license to gays
That may well be but she articulated it towards me which is why I took licence to get personal here.

I try to remember this quote but sometimes ignore it.

Three cheers for Brian Mason...
...the deputy clerk who now sits at a desk labeled "marriage license deputy" and who issued a license to a lesbian couple this morning.

However...

quote:
As Davis indicated in her statement, the couple's license has the words "pursuant to federal court order" typed on it. Deputy clerk Brian Mason issued and initialed the license.

Curious how every insistence on integrity she employs involves marring someone else's happiness. In a way, I might personally enjoy it as an historial souvenir.

But no one should have to receive a marriage license marred by comments from Ms. Davis. I'd seek an injunction to stop the practice. I don't think she has the authority in law to change the form.

AbE:

quote:
Instead of her name appearing on the license, it said it was issued pursuant to a court order and under the authority of the city of Morehead, Kentucky.

I strongly doubt her authority to do any of this.

Re: Three cheers for Brian Mason...
Ruh-roh.

quote:
(ABC News)--A Kentucky county clerk may have again defied a federal judge's order by altering marriage license forms to remove her name, according to an attorney that represents one of the clerk's employees.

...

While Davis was in jail, deputy clerk Brian Mason issued the licenses to same-sex couples. U.S. District Judge David Bunning then released Davis from jail, but ordered her not to interfere with Mason or any other employee who issued the licenses, or else risk returning to jail. Bunning appointed attorneys for each of Davis' employees and asked them to file status reports with the court every two weeks.

On Friday, Mason's attorney told the judge that when Davis returned to work Monday she "confiscated all the original forms" and replaced them with forms that delete her name, the name of the county and all references to the deputy clerks. The new form has Mason's name and a place for him to write his initials but not his signature.

"It also appears to this counsel those changes were made in some attempt to circumvent the court's orders and may have raised to the level of interference against the court's orders," attorney Richard Hughes wrote. "Mr. Mason is concerned because he is in a difficult position that he continues to issue the licenses per the court's order ... which had some remote questionable validity, but now with these changes may in fact have some substantial questions about validity."
