Appeals Court Rules for Breathitt Co Fiscal Court in Nomination Flap

A three-judge panel of the Kentucky Court of Appeals on Friday ruled that the Breathitt County Fiscal Court cannot be forced to approve the judge/executive’s nominee for county road supervisor.

The panel denied Judge/Executive Jeffrey Noble’s petition to require the Fiscal Court to ratify his appointment of Johnny Stacey.

After the fiscal court initially voted down the appointment, Noble was asking for a court order that would have made them approve the nomination.

Noble has the option to ask the Kentucky Supreme Court to hear the case on further appeal.
