Kim Davis, a born-again Christian, has been in jail since Thursday for contempt of court after refusing to issue the licenses due to her opposition to gay marriage, which the Supreme Court legalized across the United States in June.

A federal judge ruled that she be released because five of the six deputy clerks in Rowan County “stated under oath that they would comply with the Court’s Order and issue marriage certificates to all legally eligible couples.”

Davis was ordered not to “interfere in any way, directly or indirectly” with the issuance of marriage certificates, Judge David Bunning wrote, warning of “appropriate sanctions” should she do so.
