Kentucky Supreme Court

The Kentucky Court of Appeals has issued a divided ruling related to Kentucky’s version of a “stand your ground” law. Those laws have been in the national spotlight recently following the shooting death of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin.

Kentucky Supreme Court Chief Justice John Minton, Jr. has been chosen to serve a second term. “With this re-election, the justices have expressed their appreciation for the hard work and leadership of Chief Justice Minton,” says Mary C. Noble, deputy chief justice for the Supreme Court in a statement.

The Kentucky Supreme Court today has ruled that guns and other deadly weapons may be stored in a car's glove compartment while on a college campus in the state. The High Court's ruling came in the case of a graduate student from the University of Kentucky.
