What’s next for Kim Davis? Judge says she can’t withhold marriage licenses – CNN

(CNN)Kim Davis is a free woman now, but what will she do when she returns to work?

Could she end up behind bars again?

The Kentucky clerk, who was held in contempt of court for refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses, was released with a caveat she may not be willing to accept.

When U.S. District Judge David Bunning released Davis from jail on Tuesday — five days after he sent her there — he said he was satisfied that her deputies had fulfilled their obligations in her absence.

But Bunning’s new order says Davis cannot interfere with her deputies issuing marriage licenses to all legally eligible couples.

That means Davis could find herself behind bars again if she does anything to prevent the marriages from taking place, CNN Senior Legal Analyst Jeffrey Toobin said.
