Senator Claims Unequal Justice in KY


Kentuckians lack equal justice under the law because the General Assembly does not redraw judicial district boundaries every ten years…So says State Senator John Schickel of Boone County. The Republican lawmaker made the claim Wednesday in testimony before the Senate Committee on State and Local Government…

Schickel says legislators have not altered judicial districts after the federal Census because it is not required by Kentucky’s constitution and it’s difficult. He believes it should be done, anyway.
