Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis lost another bid to delay licensing same-sex marriages, marking the latest in a mounting stack of rejected appeals.

Davis returned to work this week after five days in jail for defying a court order. She had refused to issue licenses after the Supreme Court legalized gay marriage. Four couples, two straight and two gay, sued her and a federal judge ordered her to issue licenses to all qualified couples. Both same-sex couples who sued her received licenses while she was in jail.

Davis' lawyers now argue that the order should apply only to named couples, meaning Davis would not have to license gay marriages while the case remains pending. The 6th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals scrapped that request Thursday.
