Judge drops most of lawsuit filed by UK football players against members of Lexington Police Dept.
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - A judge dismissed most of a lawsuit filed by five UK football players against Lexington police.
The case dates back to 2021, when police charged the group with burglary in connection to a fight at a frat party.
Their lawyers argued the accusation damaged their careers and reputations, even though the charges were dropped.
On Friday, a judge dismissed five of the lawsuit’s six claims.
A malicious prosecution claim against Lexington Police Detective Cory Vinlove can still move forward.
