LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The county clerk in Rowan County, Kentucky who refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples wants the lawsuits against her thrown out.

The Liberty Counsel says it has filed two new briefs in court on behalf of Kim Davis.

The lawsuits were filed against Davis after she refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples in 2015.

Davis spent time in jail for refusing to follow a court order, arguing that she could not issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples because it is against her religious beliefs.
