Mat Staver, attorney for Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis, held a news conference Friday outside the Carter County jail in Grayson, where his client is being held. Staver said the marriage licenses issued by her office Friday were void because only Davis has the authority to authorize a marriage license, and she has refused to do so. "They're not worth the paper they're written on," he said.
