FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky's state treasurer is seeking to intervene in a lawsuit filed by the former state retirement systems chairman against Gov. Matt Bevin.
Kentucky Treasurer Allison Ball filed an intervening motion Monday in the suit to stop the retirement board's former chairman, Thomas Elliott, from using $50,000 in legal funding from Kentucky Retirement Systems to sue Bevin.
Elliott is suing to overturn Bevin's order removing and replacing him. Bevin has also issued an executive order that removed all the current members of the retirement system board.
Ball says in a release that Elliott's use of the funding is inappropriate, since he is no longer on the board.
Elliott, a Louisville banker, sued Bevin on June 17 after he was removed by Bevin in April.
