Attorney: Kentucky Clerk Interfered With Judge’s Order

first_img Share Legal Advocate Discusses Medical Abuse At Shut Down Georgia ICE Facility The attorney for one of the deputy clerks in Kim Davis‘ office says Davis disobeyed a federal judge’s order when she altered marriage license forms for same-sex couples.Deputy Clerk Brian Mason has been issuing marriage licenses in Rowan County over the objections of Davis, the elected county clerk who believes same-sex marriage is a sin. Davis spent five days in jail for refusing to obey a federal judge’s order that she issue the licenses. The judge released Davis from jail but warned her not to interfere as her deputies issue licenses. Davis removed her name and the name of the county from the forms.On Friday, Mason’s attorney, Richard Hughes, said the altered forms would not be valid and thus constitute an attempt to violate the judge’s order.

Will Sky Bet be the next to gain authorised betting partner status?

first_img PokerStars moves to refresh global appeal with ‘I’M IN’ August 18, 2020 Related Articles Submit ‘Deal maker’ Rafi Ashkenazi ends Flutter tenure  August 27, 2020 It is being reported that Sky Bet is to be announced as the latest bookmaker to sign up for authorised betting partner status with British horseracing. This is a somewhat exclusive status and should it go ahead the operator will join Betfair, bet365, BetVictor and 32Red as an APB. This is in addition to a number of smaller companies. The primary benefit of gaining APB status is that it allows those listed to sponsor races at a number of British tracks.The deal will also allow talkSPORT 2 to launch as planned during the upcoming Cheltenham Festival which starts on March 15th. Sky Bet is the station’s betting sponsor and the intention is to broadcast the first shows from the course which would not have been allowed to go ahead without the bookmaker first securing ABP status.Talksport’s main channel will also be broadcasting from the festival for its duration. A spokesman from Racecourse Media Group has stated that this will be allowed despite its output including sponsored shows by bookmakers without APB status. This is reportedly because they were part of deals which were agreed prior to the APB dispute.
