Kentucky Attorney General Andy Beshear issued the following statement on Thursday, Sept. 28 regarding the Supreme Court’s ruling in the University of Louisville Board case:

Iview today’s decision as a total win that protects Kentucky’s public universities, our students’ financial aid and the thousands of research jobs our public institutions support. Under the Supreme Court’s ruling, Gov. Bevin can no longer use the reorganization statute to dissolve a university board, an action that had dire consequences for the University of Louisville.

This ruling will protect the accreditation of all Kentucky universities going forward.

As to Gov. Bevin’s previous action against the University of Louisville, the Supreme Court did not refute the circuit court’s ruling that the Governor violated the law.

Instead, they found that the General Assembly bailed him out.
