KY Court System Has Cutbacks

Kentucky’s court system will impose a statewide hiring freeze and suspend out-of-state travel to reduce expenses as the coronavirus drives down revenues, the state’s chief justice said.Cost cutting across the judicial branch is aimed at mitigating possible furloughs and layoffs in coming months, Chief Justice John D. Minton Jr. said Thursday.“Over the last two months, our primary focus has been on modifying court operations in a way that would ensure social distancing while allowing us to provide essential court services,” Minton said. “Now we must turn our attention to the financial impact COVID-19 is having on the economy.”
