Two Lawsuits Over Pharmacy School Funds

Frankfort, KY – Attorney general Greg Stumbo says he thinks the courts will rule against funding for a private Baptist college.
Two lawsuits have been filed in Franklin Circuit Court. Both ask a judge to rule on whether $10 million for a pharmacy school at the University of the Cumberlands is constitutional.
Governor Fletcher's administration and a gay-rights activist want a judge's ruling before the funding goes forward.
The Kentucky Fairness Alliance has argued that the college has to obey all laws and regulations pertaining to public schools and discrimination before receiving state money. The school came under fire for expelling an openly gay student earlier this month.
Stumbo says the money raises serious constitutional questions.
