Brian Mason, a Kentucky deputy clerk issuing marriage licenses out of the office of Kim Davis, is questioning the validity of the licenses without Davis’ name, The New York Times reports. Davis requested that her name and title be removed from the licenses after she refused to issue them on religious objections. Mason shared his concerns with Judge David L. Bunning in a three-page filing in which his lawyer, Richard A. Hughes, wrote that he believed the changes “were made in some attempt to circumvent the court’s orders and may have raised to the level of interference against the court’s orders.”
