FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — The newly created University of Louisville board of trustees has called a special meeting on the same day a judge is scheduled to hold a hearing about whether the new board is legal.

Republican Gov. Matt Bevin replaced the board with an executive order last month. Democratic Attorney General Andy Beshear sued him, arguing the order was illegal. Thursday, Beshear will ask a state judge to block Bevin’s order. It is one of three pending lawsuits pitting Beshear against Bevin.

The new board held its first meeting last week. President James Ramsey offered his resignation, but the board did not act on it. Thursday’s agenda includes the budget and tuition and a closed session to discuss possible litigation and “a business proposal.”
