Meanwhile, in Kentucky

By Michael Dorf

My editors at Verdict were kind enough to rush-publish my column on the Kim Davis case. The column is here. I'll have some further thoughts on the broad issue of when, if ever, government officials are entitled to religious exemptions from their official duties on Monday.

For now, just one short postscript: A breaking story reports that Davis has rejected a proposal that her deputies issue marriage licenses. It's not clear that this is a material change, since Davis had already barred her deputies from issuing the licenses.
