KY: Kim Davis in trouble again

July 6, 2016

What happens when respect for the rule of law is thrown out the window for religious reasons.

But Davis and Liberty Counsel don’t want to cooperate.

“There’s nothing to reveal here,” said Mat Staver, the group’s founder and lead attorney. Staver, who says he represents Davis for free, told the state that the requested documents are legally exempt from review.

The attorney general’s office asked to examine the documents in a private review to determine if they are indeed exempt from the open-records laws. Liberty Counsel refused even this request. That, the attorney general’s office says, goes too far.

“An agency cannot benefit from intentionally frustrating the attorney general’s review of an open records request. Such result would subvert the General Assembly’s intent behind providing review by the attorney general,” said Assistant Attorney General Matt Jones. The attorney general’s opinion carries the force of law, and Staver is considering his options.
