Attorney General Greg Stumbo says he predicts a judge will rule against funding for a private Baptist college.
Two lawsuits have been filed in Franklin circuit court.
Both ask the court to rule on whether $10 million for a pharmacy school at the University of the Cumberlands is constitutional.
The governor's administration and a gay-rights activist group want a judge's ruling before the funding goes forward.
The school came under fire earlier this month for expelling an openly gay student.
