FRANKFORT, Ky. (WKYT) - The ousted members of the Kentucky Board of Education are re-filing their lawsuit against Governor Andy Beshear, Attorney General Daniel Cameron, and the current members of the board.
The previous board believes the decision violates Kentucky law.
Those members are withdrawing their lawsuit in Franklin Circuit Court and re-filing a lawsuit in U.S. District Court.
The members are partnering with the Bluegrass Institute for Public Policy Solutions as they move forward with the new lawsuit.
“Moving forward, the institute will provide financial and legal support as we continue to petition the courts to overturn the governor’s executive order,” said Dr. Gary Houchens, the board members’ spokesperson.
“In addition to our contention the executive order violates Kentucky law, we believe the governor’s actions violate the constitutional separation of powers between the executive and legislative branches, and also denied board members their right to due process,” Houchens said.
