ABC News reported:

“After remanding Defendant Davis to the custody of the U.S. Marshal, five of her six deputy clerks stated under oath that they would comply with the Court’s Order and issue marriage licenses to all legally eligible couples,” an order issued by U.S. District Judge David Bunning said.

“On September 8, 2015, Plaintiffs filed a Status Report at the Court’s behest. According to the Report, Plaintiffs have obtained marriage licenses from the Rowan County Clerk’s Office,” the order noted. “The Court is therefore satisfied that the clerk’s office is fulfilling its obligation to issue marriage licenses to all legally eligible couples.”

Plaintiffs who had sued the defiant county clerk asked the court to release Davis after her deputies issued marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

The judge agreed that the Rowan County Clerk’s Office was fulfilling its obligation to issue marriage licenses and ordered the county clerk released from jail.
