Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis continued to refuse to issue marriage licenses this morning, just hours after the Supreme Court ruled that she could not be exempted for doing so. She stopped issuing the licenses after the high court legalized same-sex marriage across the country in June.

Now critics of Davis are calling for the district judge to hold her in contempt of court, which could mean fines or jail time. Ryland Barton of Kentucky Public Radio has been covering the story and joins Here & Now's Robin Young with details.
