The legal team behind jailed Kentucky clerk Kim Davis says that licenses issued to same-sex couples in her absence are invalid because they were issued without her authority, NPR reports. U.S. District Judge David Bunning said Davis will remain behind bars until she complies with the U.S. Supreme Court order legalizing same-sex marriage. Mat Staver, Davis’ attorney, told CNN that Davis would issue licenses if her name and title were not on them.
