FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- A federal appeals court has dismissed a lawsuit that a Kentucky clerk filed against the state for requiring her to issue marriage licenses that contained her name to same-sex couples.

Kim Davis refused to issue such licenses to same-sex couples, arguing it violated her religious beliefs. The American Civil Liberties Union sued her. A federal judge ordered Davis to issue the licenses.

Davis sued then-Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear and another state official, but Beshear left office in December. Republican Gov. Matt Bevin replaced him and signed an executive order removing the names of county clerks from marriage license forms.

The court dismissed the case, saying Davis is not experiencing irreparable harm.

The ACLU's lawsuit is still pending.
