FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway says he will argue a case over the powers of his office before the state Supreme Court this week.

The Courier-Journal (http://cjky.it/1ajHJm7) reports justices will consider under what circumstances the office can participate in investigations across the state.

The case stems from two drug trafficking cases in eastern Kentucky in which Court of Appeals panels have ruled that the Attorney General has jurisdiction only when local officials or the governor request it.

Conway argues in court filings that his office could be stripped of its power to fight different crimes if the rulings stand.

The newspaper reports the case will be the first that Conway has argued since he took office in 2008.
