Kentucky judge considers changing order in retirement board case

The former chairman of the Kentucky Retirement Systems board has asked a state judge to allow him to continue to participate in its meetings.
    
Thomas Elliott testified during a court hearing on Wednesday in front of Franklin County Circuit Judge Phillip Shepherd. Elliott angered Shepherd last month when he did not attend two retirement board meetings after Shepherd ordered he be allowed to participate.
    
Tuesday, attorneys for Republican Gov. Matt Bevin filed a motion asking Shepherd to dissolve his previous order. Elliott sued Bevin after Bevin issued an executive order earlier this year removing Elliott from the board.
    
Shepherd said he hopes to have a ruling by the end of the day Thursday. The retirement board is scheduled to meet at 10 a.m. Thursday. Elliot said he plans to attend.
