LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Supreme Court has ruled that
guns and other deadly weapons may be stored in a car's glove
compartment while on a college campus in the state.
The high court's ruling on Thursday came in the case of
University of Kentucky graduate student and anesthesia technician
Michael Mitchell, who lost his job in 2009 after campus police
found a semi-automatic pistol in his car.
Mitchell, who has a concealed weapons permit, sued the
university over the firing. Fayette Circuit Judge Pamela Goodwine
ruled in favor of the university. The high court reinstated
Mitchell's suit after concluding that the law allows guns to be
kept in a car's glove compartment.
