Due to interest in the case about retirement benefits for state and county workers and public school teachers, the Supreme Court has partnered with KET to broadcast the proceedings on KY KET, KET’s KY Channel, which is available in most of the state. KET will also livestream the proceedings at www.ket.org/legislature.

A replay of the hearing will be available on KET’s website.

The Supreme Court will also livestream the proceedings, per its usual practice of livestreaming all oral arguments. Oral arguments are available through the Supreme Court online as they occur in real time and are not archived online.

Proceedings are open to the public, but there are only 140 seats in the Supreme Court Courtroom for those who want to attend in person. The seats are available on a first-come, first served basis for what is expected to be an hour-long hearing. The courtroom doors will open at 8:30 a.m. ET Thursday.

Both sides in the pension case have filed legal briefs, which are available on the Kentucky Court of Justice website.
