Andy Beshear Loses Case Against Gov. Bevin

In a 24-page ruling issued earlier today, Judge Thomas Wingate of the Franklin Circuit Court dismissed Attorney General Andy Beshear’s case against Governor Matt Bevin.

On April 1—no joke, as it turns out—Beshear sent a letter to the Governor insisting that he had acted unlawfully in cutting funding to the state funded universities. He threatened to file a lawsuit in the event that the Governor restore allotments to the universities by April 8, or else he’d file a lawsuit against the Governor. Beshear did carry out his threat and promptly filed a lawsuit on April 11.

After examining the evidence brought by Beshear, the judge concluded that the Governor acted within his authority to reduce university spending.

For now, the case has been dismissed. Beshear has promised to appeal the ruling to the Kentucky Supreme Court. It’s not likely that he’ll win. His dad, Steve Beshear, also successfully cut funding to state universities.
