The Supreme Court of Kentucky heard oral arguments on November 13 & 14, 2013. Mea culpa, but I failed to post them in a timely fashion for those who might have wished to attend or watch on-line. To keep the archives current, I am posting now.
There was one tort, insurance and civil procedure case set to be heard this week.

Appellant’s Reply Brief
Amicus Curiae Brief
“Tort Law. Punitive Damages. Respondeat Superior. Issues include whether an employer’s admission of respondeat superior liability requires dismissal of other theories of secondary liability, like negligent hiring; whether a claim for negligent hiring can be based on evidence of an employee-tortfeasor’s past alcoholism, addiction, or mental health treatment when there is no evidence the accident was causally related to those factors; and whether an employer may be found to have ratified or authorized an employee’s conduct for purposes of KRS 411.184(3) based on post-incident investigation policies.”
