LOUISVILLE, Ky. — After a judge dismissed a University of Louisville student's lawsuit against Katina Powell in 2016, the Court of Appeals said it has granted oral argument.

Former Miss Kentucky USA and Louisville student Kyle Hornback was named in the suit against the "Breaking Cardinal Rules" author, alleging Powell and her book devalued her degree after Powell's book became the center of the school's basketball scandal.

Powell's publisher, IBJ Book Publishing, later counter-sued Hornback, saying she and other plaintiffs sued to extort money from the controversy.

The Court of Appeals scheduled oral arguments for July 30. Judge Larry E. Thompson will preside over the court, with judges Glenn E. Acree and C. Shea Nickell also on the panel.
