The move comes less than two days after the new Board of Trustees accepted UofL President James Ramsey's resignation, which, according to Joe Sonka, is still valid "until anyone challenges" it. That said, it's not clear whether the current Board of Trustees is still in power, or what the heck is going on. Judge Shepherd argued Governor Bevin issued the executive order to dissolve the previous board without merit, so, using that logic, he could issue all sorts of executive orders, even one to merge the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville. Quelle horreur! https://twitter.com/JasonRileyWDRB/status/759047685869404161 Don't freak out, that's just an example, but man, it's terrifying: https://twitter.com/JasonRileyWDRB/status/759051426081275904 No. https://twitter.com/JasonRileyWDRB/status/759051975644196865 The Kentucky guys. This is the saga that never ends! And it goes on and on, my friends!
