Noah Michelson, Executive Editor at The Huffington Post's Gay Voices, returns to The Signorile Show today to help us close out the week with the stories making headlines in the LGBT blog-o-sphere. You can also follow Noah on twitter.
Following the Supreme Court’s ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges in June, Kim Davis, a clerk in Rowan County, Kentucky began refusing to issue marriage licenses, saying that her Christian faith bars her from authorizing same-sex marriages. As a result of her decision she was promptly sued and a federal district judge in eastern Kentucky ordered her issue the licenses, but delayed his order to allow time for an appeal. Now, as of yesterday, The United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit upheld the lower court decision and denied her request for a stay. Joining me today to discuss the case and the ongoing fight for marriage equality in Kentucky is Daniel J. Canon, one of the lawyers for the plaintiffs.
