Beshear vetoes bill on assigning lawsuits against state

FRANKFORT, Ky, (AP) — Kentucky's Democratic governor has vetoed another Republican-backed bill. Gov. Andy Beshear rejected a measure aimed at bypassing a circuit court traditionally assigned high-profile cases involving state government. Beshear says the attempt to steer cases away from the Franklin County Circuit Court reflects “legislative dissatisfaction with the duly elected judges and their rulings.” For years, former GOP Gov. Matt Bevin and other Republicans complained about rulings by Franklin circuit court judges in high-stakes cases dealing with constitutional issues. GOP lawmakers have the numbers if they decide to override the veto when they resume their session next month.
