The appeal and the motion asking for the case to be transferred to the Supreme Court were both filed on Feb. 11 by W. E. Petey Rogers, attorney for Grow Trigg, according to the Court of Appeals and Supreme Court web sites.
The government of Trigg County and those that filed the original petition in the Montgomery precinct, the other parties involved in the case, have until Saturdaya to file a response with the Supreme Court.
Once the deadline has passed, the Kentucky Supreme Court justices will look at the motion to transfer and will decide if they will hear the appeal, said a deputy supreme court clerk.
If the Supreme Court justices decide to hear the appeal, the case will be scheduled on the Supreme Court docket, said the clerk, adding however that there isn’t any way to tell how soon the court will make a decision concerning the transfer or when the case could be heard by the Supreme Court.
The Kentucky Court of Appeals will take no action on the case until the Supreme Court decides whether or not to hear it.
