Proceedings are open to the public and will take place in the Supreme Court Courtroom on the second floor of the state Capitol at 700 Capital Ave. in Frankfort.

Wednesday, August 21, 2019 at 11amET, 2018-SC-0000292-DG
"KRS 342.197. Wrongful Discharge. Governmental Immunity. The issue in this matter is whether a governmental entity or its employees are immune from liability for a claim filed pursuant to KRS 342.197, for wrongful discharge for filing of a worker's compensation claim. And if a governmental entity and its employees are subject to such a claim, were there genuine issues of fact in this case sufficient to overcome a motion for summary judgment."

Discretionary Review granted 9/19/2018
Taylor Circuit Court, Judge Allan Ray Bertram
Attorney for Appellants: Arden Winter Robertson Huff
Attorney for Appellee: Larry Duane Ashlock

115th Kentucky State Fair is Aug. 15-25, 2019

2019 Kentucky State Fair ticket information and the concert schedule:

By Sean Southard

Frankfort, KY - Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles invites all Kentuckians to join him at Kentucky agriculture's mid-summer showcase, the 115th Kentucky State Fair, Aug. 15-25 at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville.

"The Kentucky State Fair brings the best of Kentucky agriculture together in one location," Commissioner Quarles said. "The fair is a golden opportunity for farmers to talk to the non-farming community about how they produce the food and fiber we all depend on and why they love the agricultural lifestyle. It's also the highlight of the livestock show season in Kentucky, where the best of the best compete for prizes and bragging rights. My staff and I will be hard at work to help everyone enjoy their visit to the fair."

For the second year in a row, the Kentucky Department of Agriculture (KDA) and its partners in Kentucky's Farm Families will host the AgLand exhibit in the South Wing. AgLand was introduced at the 2018 Kentucky State Fair to highlight Kentucky's rich farming heritage and its bright agricultural future. AgLand exhibits include the 4-H Cloverville space, FFA projects, the Discovery Farm Sponsored by Kentucky Pork Producers, and more ag attractions.
