Kentucky Supreme Court

J. Tyler Franklin, WFPL

The Supreme Court of Kentucky has ruled in favor of Gov. Matt Bevin in a legal challenge over whether he had the authority to overhaul the University of Louisville’s board of trustees last year.

The Kentucky Supreme Court has given more weight to a parent’s opinion than a grandparent’s opinion in child visitation cases. The court ruled today that if parents oppose allowing grandparents to visit their grandchildren, they must be presumed to be acting in the child's best interests. The Courier-Journal reports the ruling does not strike down Kentucky's 1984 grandparent visitation law.
