Same-sex couple asks U.S. judge to hold Kentucky clerk in contempt

(Reuters) - A same-sex couple who was denied a marriage license on Tuesday has asked a U.S. judge to hold a Kentucky county clerk in contempt of court, according to a court filing.

Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis, defying a June U.S. Supreme Court decision recognizing a constitutional right to gay marriage, rejected requests for marriage licenses from same-sex couples on Tuesday, attorneys for the couples said.
