FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Supreme Court will not hear oral arguments or issue decisions in November after officials cited a lack of cases ready to be heard.

Justices normally hear three to eight cases a month 10 months out of the year and issue decisions the second-to-last Thursday of each month.

Because there is no court hearing day in November, the justices will not issue decisions.

The high court has a slate of six cases scheduled to be heard on Dec. 10 and Dec. 11.

The Supreme Court of Kentucky is the court of last resort and the final interpreter of state law.

Cases involving the death penalty, life imprisonment or imprisonment for 20 years or more go directly from circuit court to the Supreme Court for review.
