  • "The prosecution closed its extortion case against Karen Sypher Tuesday after presenting 20 witnesses, including a Louisville Metro Police sergeant who explained why he thought Sypher was lying when she reported last year that University of Louisville basketball coach Rick Pitino had raped her in 2003."

  • "The Greater Louisville Hotel and Lodging Association hosted a debate Tuesday between Democrat Greg Fischer, Republican Hal Heiner and independent Jackie Green...The three mayoral candidates were not asked about a recent poll that showed Fischer and Heiner tied in the race, and compared to the last debate, Tuesday’s was fairly calm…at least it was on stage. After the debate, campaign staffers took the opportunity to criticize each others’ bosses. This is normal post-debate action, but it’s not too often that campaign staffers directly address each other. LEO’s Phillip Bailey has the story of an exchange between staffers over Heiner’s answer to a question on gambling, which representatives from both campaigns were discussing with us." [WFPL]
