The Kentucky Supreme Court will hear the case of Commonwealth of Kentucky, Cabinet for Health and Family Services, ex rel., et al. v. Ezra Claycomb, et al. at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 8.
The appeal concerns the constitutionality of Senate Bill 4, Kentucky's medical review panel statute. The appellant contends that the Franklin Circuit Court's judgment invalidating Senate Bill 4 should be revered because the circuit court misapplied rational basis review to second-guess the wisdom of the General Assembly, the appeal states.
