The Kentucky Attorney General's Office is officially intervening in a lawsuit between Western Kentucky University and two student newspapers, the College Heights Herald and The Kernel Press.

According to the Attorney General's Office, on Wednesday, March 29, WKU, the Kernel, and the College Herald Heights all agreed to the Motion to Intervene.

The Attorney General's office asked that a hearing scheduled for April 3 be canceled.

According to court documents, WKU said it does not agree with the Attorney General's assertions in the Motion to Intervene, but does agree that the Attorney General has right to intervene and does not object to the motion.

Kentucky State University filed a response in its case objecting to the Attorney General's Motion to Intervene. A hearing is set for the KSU motion on April 5 in Franklin Circuit Court.
