Ky. appeals ruling over questioning students

The Kentucky attorney general's office has asked the U.S. Supreme Court to consider a case involving whether students must be informed of their rights before being questioned at school.
   
Attorney General Jack Conway asked the justices Tuesday to overturn a Kentucky Supreme Court decision from April. In that case from Nelson County, the state justices concluded that students must be informed of their legal rights - including the right to remain silent - before being questioned by school administrators working with police or school resource officers.
   
Conway says school administrators shouldn't be required to advise students of their rights - a practice known as Mirandizing - simply because a school resource officer may be present during an investigation of school-related issues.
