Judge Bunning releases Davis, saying he is satisfied that her deputies fulfilled their obligations to give marriage licenses to same-sex couples in her absence. Bunning’s new order says Davis, once free, still cannot interfere with her deputies issuing marriage licenses to all legally eligible couples. Davis is released from jail, and says she plans to return to work this week. When a reporter asks if her stay in jail was worth it, she smiles and nods. Attorney:
I can guarantee you, knowing Kim, she loves God, she loves people, she loves her work, and she will not betray any of those three. She’ll do her job good. She’ll serve the people…and she’ll also be loyal to God, and she’s not going to violate her conscience.
