LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A lawsuit filed by an NCAA referee against Kentucky Sports Radio is being moved to Kentucky.
A Nebraska judge decided Friday to move the case from Nebraska, saying the court lacks jurisdiction over the Kentucky blog and radio show.
John Higgins filed the lawsuit in October after fans flooded his roofing business with phone calls threatening and harassing him.
Higgins says KSR encouraged fans to do this.
Higgins was one of the officiating referees during the University of Kentucky's Elite 8 match-up with North Carolina. Many fans and commentators questioned some of the calls made, and not made, during the game.
KSR founder Matt Jones has asked for the case to be dismissed, but the judge is leaving that up to the US District Court in Eastern Kentucky.
