  • "The U.S. Supreme Court has declined to hear an appeal from a Sellersburg, Ind. couple fighting for custody of the now 3-year-old boy whose biological mother gave the child up for adoption by them when he was born in Ohio. Jason and Christy Vaughn have been fighting for Grayson for the entire three years of his life, losing a series of cases in Ohio courts, including the Ohio Supreme Court, to Benjamin Wyrembek, Grayson’s biological father." [Courier-Journal]
  • "In a letter to the chairwoman of the Metro Council’s government accountability committee, Council President Jim King, D-10, is calling on the Ethics Commission to consider new allegations against Councilwoman Judy Green, D-1, at its hearing later this month. In 2009, Green allocated $7,500 from her office discretionary funds to the non-profit group 100 Black Men of Louisville to hire speakers for a mentoring program. The group’s leaders told The Courier-Journal, however, that Green’s office instructed them to ask for more money than they needed in order to spend the additional funding elsewhere at her direction."
