Federal appeals court ruled Kim Davis must pay $224,000 in legal fees incurred for violating the civil rights of same-sex couples. I wonder if Huckabee will pay it for her to show his unwavering support.

Quote:
The Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled today that former Rowan County (KY) Clerk Kim Davis is responsible for paying nearly $225,000 in court costs and attorneys’ fees after losing a legal battle for defying the law when she refused to sign marriage licenses for same-sex couples.

Commenting on the decision, William E. Sharp, cooperating attorney for the ACLU of Kentucky, said:

The Court of Appeals correctly found that April Miller and the other ACLU clients prevailed by forcing the former Clerk to abandon her unlawful policy of withholding marriage licenses from the public. By affirming the sizeable fee award, the Court also sent a strong message to other government officials in Kentucky that it is not only unconstitutional to use public office to impose one’s personal religious views on others, but that it also can be a very expensive mistake.

Good verdict. Probably should have been a higher payout though.
