(September 1, 2015)

Kim Davis, the former Kentucky county clerk who denied gay couples’ marriage licenses in 2015, must pay approximately $260,000 for one couple’s attorney fees and expenses, a federal judge ruled.

This is in addition to the $100,000 she was ordered to pay the same couple, David Ermold and David Moore, in September.

“My clients couldn’t be happier,” Michael Gartland of DelCotto Law Group, who represented the couple, told USA TODAY in September following the order for Davis to pay them $100,000.

Gartland did not immediately respond to a request for comment concerning the $260,000 in attorney fees, which includes payment to his firm.
