BREAKING: Two Frankfort Shockers

Two Frankfort shockers this afternoon:

  • The Courier-Journal is reporting that Joseph Lambert, Chief Justice of the Kentucky Supreme Court, will resign and be a part of the senior judge program, effective June 27. According to a news release, Lambert said: "We have made great progress in the last decade to improve Kentucky courts and make them more responsive to the needs of Kentucky's families and children...As with any individual's efforts, however, there comes a time to move on."
  • Pol Watchers is reporting that Attorney General Jack Conway issued an opinion stating that "The Council on Postsecondary Education violated state law when it appointed Lexington lawyer Brad Cowgill as its president without retaining a search firm and conducting a new national search for a permanent president." The opinion was only an advisory and did not "address Cowgill's qualifications." Conway also stated that the CPE violated the state Open Meetings Law.

These two events could have big political consequences...stay tuned.
