For the first time in history same-sex couples can marry in Knox County. The United States Supreme Court ruled Friday, June 26, that it is unconstitutional to deny same-sex couples the right to marry. Governor Steven Beshear sent a letter to every County Clerk in Kentucky regarding the decision.
Mike Corey, Knox County Clerk, said, “The United States Supreme Court has the final say. I’m no lawyer, but I don’t see any way to appeal it from here.”
