The Associated Press is reporting that a Kentucky judge has blocked efforts by Republican Gov. Matt Bevin to replace the board of trustees at the University of Louisville, setting up a likely battle before the state Supreme Court over who controls one of the Atlantic Coast Conference’s newest members.
“What our students and faculty need now is finality,” Attorney General Andy Beshear said in a news release. “That is why I am calling on Gov. Bevin to either accept the ruling and appoint trustees to the five openings, or agree to move this case immediately to the Kentucky Supreme Court.”
