KY High Court Takes Case of Slain Informant

The Kentucky Supreme Court has agreed to take up a lawsuit brought by the family of a man who was killed while serving as an informant for the Kentucky State Police.

The high court on Thursday opted to take up the suit brought by the family of LeBron Gaither, who died in July 1996 during a controlled drug buy on a drive between Taylorsville and Casey County.

The Kentucky Board of Claims awarded Gaither's family $168,000, but a Franklin Circuit judge overturned that decision in 2011. The Kentucky Court of Appeals in May also rejected the award to Gaither's family.

The high court did not give a reason for taking up the case.
