Judge Blocks Kentucky Governor’s Order Abolishing U. of Louisville Board
A Kentucky judge has temporarily blocked Gov. Matt Bevin’s executive order dissolving the University of Louisville’s Board of Trustees and establishing a new one. The order, signed by Phillip J. Shepherd, a Franklin County Circuit Court judge, grants a motion for a temporary injunction filed by the state’s attorney general, Andy Beshear.
“The record here is devoid of any legal or factual precedent for a governor to abolish and recreate an entire board of trustees of a public university,” the order reads, in part.
