LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- A federal appeals court rules an eastern Kentucky county clerk may still owe damages to a same-sex couple after denying them a marriage license.
The U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals has thrown out a ruling from District Judge David Bunning that called the lawsuit filed by David Ermold and David Moore against Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis "moot" because a change in Kentucky law satisfied their grievance. The appeals court says that’s not the case since the law was not in effect when the couple was denied a license or when they filed their suit. The case is now being sent back to the lower court to determine what damages Davis may owe.
