LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A federal appeals court has dismissed a lawsuit Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis filed against the state. 

Davis refused to issue marriage licenses to same sex couples after last summer's United States Supreme Court ruling. 

She spent six days in jail for her continued refusal to do so.

Davis sued then Democratic Governor Steve Beshear arguing the state's marriage license form violated her religious belief by requiring her signature for same sex marriages. 

The court dismissed the case Wednesday saying Davis is not experiencing "irreparable harm."

Davis still faces a lawsuit filed by the ACLU on behalf of four, same sex couples.
