Kim Davis is taking the day off after her release from jail on contempt charges.

The Rowan County clerk’s attorney said Davis would not return to work Wednesday, and it’s not clear whether Davis will abide by a federal judge’s orders on her conditional release.

U.S. District Court Judge David Bunning agreed to release Davis after he held her in contempt of court, but he ordered the elected county clerk not to interfere “directly or indirectly” with the issuance of marriage licenses in her office.

Five of the six deputy clerks agreed to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples last week after Davis was jailed. Davis’ son — who also works in the office — refused to comply but was spared jail by Bunning.

One of those deputy clerks, Brian Mason, said he would continue to issue marriage licenses even if Davis orders him not to do so.

Mason — who hung a sign describing himself as the official “marriage license deputy” Friday morning, after Davis was jailed — is the deputy clerk who issued the county’s first marriage license to a same-sex couple and previously apologized to couplesbefore turning them away on the clerk’s order.
