Kim Davis has lost another legal battle in her protracted war against marriage equality.
The 6th Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday denied Davis’s latest request for a reprieve from issuing marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
Four couples sued her, and U.S. District Judge David Bunning then ordered her to issue the licenses. He later clarified his order to include all couples, not just the four who filed suit.
Davis’ attorneys have appealed that expanded order several times, arguing that the mandate to issue licenses should apply only to the four couples who filed suit. They received licenses during Davis’ five-day stint in jail for defying the court’s order.
The appeals court again rejected Davis’ request Thursday.
