Same-Sex Couples Can Now Legally Sue Kim Davis For Damages

BAM!

Same-sex couples are now legally allowed to sue Rowan County clerk Kim Davis, who refused to give out marriage licenses to gay couples even when federally ordered to do so.

A ruling last August denied David Ermold and David Moore’s lawsuit against Davis, but today, an appeals court has ruled that the suit is valid, because it is “not a general challenge to Davis’s policy, but rather seeks damages for a particularized harm allegedly suffered by a specific set of plaintiffs.” Ermold and Moore are the couple who originally filmed Davis denying them their federal right to obtain a marriage license.
