PANEL: CAPERTON PRESIDING; LAMBERT, THOMPSON CONCUR
DATE RENDERED: 3/14/2008
COA held the trial court had authority to reinstate a dependent’s commitment to Cabinet for Health and Family Services for purpose of facilitating the dependent’s college education until the age of 21 in spite of the fact that the Cabinet had made an earlier decision to suspend such commitment after dependent had previously decided to quit college; dependent sought reinstatement after changing her mind about school and wishing to go to college. See, KRS 620.140.
