A judge in Frankfort is set to take up when to set a trial over the issue of Instant Racing at racetracks.

A hearing is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. Monday in Franklin Circuit Court after Kentucky officials requested a hearing to move the case toward a resolution.

 

Deputy Chief Justice Mary Noble of Lexington has become the first woman to preside over oral arguments in the Kentucky Supreme Court.  The issue before the Supreme Court was ineffective assistance of counsel in a criminal case. It's a fairly routine issue of appeal, but the proceedings were unique because, for the first time, a woman was sitting in the chief justice's chair.
