LOUISVILLE (WHAS11) -- Those representing the city of Louisville have now asked the courts to dismiss a contempt order against Metro Corrections.

Judge Stephanie Burke was trying to hold the department in contempt after allegations of inmates not being released on time and inmates missing court dates.

In new court documents filed in the past week leaders at Metro Corrections say they responded to the Judges messages and didn't knowingly violate any court orders.

The judge called those from Metro Corrections into court in January to go over her concerns.

Those with the department say there is not merit to the allegations.They are scheduled to have another hearing at the end of March.
