KY Supreme Court To Hear Four Cases This Week

LRC Public Information

The Kentucky Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in four cases this week. A statement from the court clerk says two cases will be heard on Wednesday and two will be heard on Thursday. The first case involves whether a University of Kentucky doctor made a protected disclosure of suspected wrongdoing. Following arguments in that case, justices will hear a case involving an attempted adoption without terminating the rights of both biological parents. The third case deals with self-defense immunity and the fourth involves a dispute between the city of Fort Wright and Kentucky Retirement Systems over how pension funds were invested.
