FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Republican Gov. Matt Bevin is asking a state judge to reverse himself.

Attorneys for Bevin asked Franklin Circuit Judge Phillip Shepherd on Wednesday to reverse his ruling last month banning the governor from abolishing and replacing the University of Louisville board of trustees. Attorney Stephen Pitt says Shepherd incorrectly summarized Bevin’s arguments and used inaccurate interpretations of prior court rulings to form his opinion.

Lawyers for Democratic Attorney General Andy Beshear said Shepherd’s decision is correct and does not need to be changed.

Shepherd said he would consider the arguments and issue a ruling soon. When he does, it will give both sides an extra 30 days to file an appeal, which would delay a final ruling in the case.
