Former Kentucky clerk Kim Davis ordered to pay $100,000 to gay couple over refusing to sign their marriage license
ยท Sep 15, 2023 ยท

In an era of comprehensively vengeful progressive politics, I can't say this is all that surprising:

A federal jury determined Kim Davis, a former Kentucky county clerk whose refusal to grant same-sex marriage licenses briefly landed her in jail in 2015, must pay $100,000 to one couple who sued her.

The jury in Ashland, Ky., on Wednesday awarded $50,000 each to plaintiffs David Ermold and David Moore following a brief trial this week. ...

The two men seeking to get married had eventually obtained their state-issued marriage license while Davis herself sat in jail. After doing so, they brought a lawsuit against Davis over violation of their purported constitutional right to the union.

A judge last year had ruled in the couple's favor; the jury trial to determine the damages took place this week. And my goodness, what a payout.

The two men had originally brought suit because of having allegedly suffered "mental anguish" over being denied the license. "It's extremely emotional for my clients," one of their lawyers said. The jury saw that, and they agreed."

Davis's legal team, meanwhile, plans to appeal the rulings.
