    After a judge ruled that Gov. Matt Bevin’s moves to replace the University of Louisville Board of Trustees did not pass legal muster, the governor is calling on Attorney General Andy Beshear to say whether he believes the former board meets legal requirements regarding the panel’s political makeup. Franklin Circuit Judge Phillip Shepherd granted Beshear’s request for a temporary injunction on Friday, finding that Bevin’s actions in abolishing and reconstituting the UofL board overstepped his authority. Bevin’s office has said it will appeal the ruling. In his June 17 press conference, Bevin justified his executive actions by saying the board...

"We strongly support academic freedom," said President James Ramsey. "The quote attributed to Professor McTighe is unacceptable and not an issue of academic freedom." "Students are leaving the campus for the holiday...
