A federal judge has dismissed all pending litigation against Rowan County, Kentucky, clerk Kim Davis for her refusal to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples, the Crossville Chronicle reports. Davis, who refused a court order to issue the licenses, spent nearly a week in jail but was released after one of her deputies began issuing the licenses. Federal District Judge David L. Bunning's order says that since “marriage licenses continue to be issued without incident, there no longer remains a case or controversy before the court.”
