U of L scandal lawsuit continues in court

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS 11)--The controversy surrounding the UofL men's basketball team and claims in the Book Breaking Cardinal Rules continued in court Oct.24.

A group of attorneys gathered before a Jefferson County judge, each representing a person or people listed on the civil lawsuit involving Katina Powell and her book.

The case has been ongoing for months and involves self-proclaimed madam Katina Powell, the publisher of her book Indianapolis Business Journal, the women mentioned in the book and UofL students who claimed the book damaged the value of the degrees from the university.

The students' part of the suit has since been thrown out but the attorney for the women Powell says performed strip shows and sex acts for basketball players and recruits discussed the push for a protective order so the women's personal information is not released.

The judge said he wants to wait until the trial on Nov. 2 to discuss and rule on everything.

The attorneys for Powell and IBJ say they're confident the judge will see their side.
