LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — The University of Louisville’s temporary leader is set to talk about the school’s immediate future as Kentucky’s Republican governor and Democrat attorney general battle over the appointment of its board of trustees.

Acting president Neville Pinto will speak Thursday morning on the downtown campus.

On July 27, a new board of trustees appointed by Gov. Matt Bevin accepted the resignation of embattled President James Ramsey, whose long tenure was dogged by scandal in recent years. Two days after Ramsey’s departure, a judge temporarily halted Bevin’s replacement of the trustees. The judge said his ruling wouldn’t affect Ramsey’s leaving.

Pinto is serving until a new president is selected. He was named executive vice president and university provost last year and joined the university in 2011 as engineering school dean.
