Former Kentucky clerk Kim Davis refused to issue marriage licenses to LGBTQ+ couples in 2015. Nearly a decade later, she’s facing $360,000 in damages and attorney fees. Davis was ordered in September to pay $100,000 in damages to one of the couples she denied a license. She was ordered on Tuesday to pay an additional $260,104 to David Ermold and David Moore to cover their attorney fees, according to the Lexington Herald-Leader. Davis refused to issue marriage licenses to gay couples following the Obergefell v. Hodges U.S. Supreme Court decision in 2015 which recognized marriage equality, claiming it would violate her religious beliefs. She then shut down all marriage license operations in her office to avoid serving same-sex couples, before she was briefly detained for her illegal actions.
