Kentucky’s attorney general has filed a document in WKU’s lawsuit against the College Heights Herald saying that a state Court of Appeals decision last week indicates that a Warren Circuit Court judge should rule in favor of the Herald.
In a case similar to WKU’s lawsuit against the College Heights Herald, the Kentucky Court of Appeals on Friday overturned a Fayette Circuit Court ruling that allowed the University of Kentucky to withhold files relating to a sexual misconduct investigation from the Kentucky Kernel.
The WKU Board of Regents met on Friday to vote on Comprehensive Academic Program Evaluation recommendations and WKU's capital plan, as well as the 2020 budget.
Editor's note: This story previously stated that WKU's budget would see a 5% decrease in tuition. WKU's tuition will actually increase by 2%. The university will see a 5% decrease in revenue from tuition. The Herald regrets the error.
