Lawsuit filed by UofL students filed against Katina Powell dismissed because it was dumb

Remember when a bunch of UofL students filed a lawsuit against Katina Powell because they said her book, “Breaking Cardinal Rules,” devalued their degree from UofL? According to WDRB, Jefferson Circuit Court judge Mitch Perry dismissed the lawsuit today because it was dumb then and it’s dumb now. 

Judge Mitch Perry ruled that plaintiff Kyle Hornback and other students have no standing and allowing their case to go forward would open up a chain of liability that could be taken advantage of by future students.

“A current or future student could potentially bring a claim against a university for virtually any negative assertion which has a real or imagined impact on that student’s education,” Perry ruled. “Allowing this claim to go forward would allow these plaintiffs to drastically expand the avenues of civil liability and recovery in the commonwealth of Kentucky.”

Perry did allow the defamation lawsuit by the women named in the book as participants in the Minardi Hall parties to move forward. For more information, check out the story at WDRB.com.

    Said this when the news first broke. Everyone who was friends with Kyle argued how intelligent she was and how her lawsuit was based on logical assertions and blah blah blah. Said from the beginning this is dumb and won’t last through the end of spring.

    If anyone thought this would make it to court, then they have no grasp on reality, let alone American law.
