Ron Mather, attorney for Hodgenville Mayor Terry Cruse, has filed an injunction to postpone tonight’s public hearing for Cruse’s possible removal.

According to Nancy Lasley, secretary for Mather, the injunction was filed in LaRue Circuit Court Thursday afternoon and is awaiting a ruling.

“I would like to have the hearing done in a fair manner in a fair amount of time,” Mather said Wednesday night in an interview. “We would like more time to prepare.”

The hearing is scheduled for 7 tonight at Hodgenville City Hall in the Civic Center Auditorium.

The ruling will not effect a special city council meeting at 6:30 p.m. to consider appointments to Hodgenville’s board of ethics, City Clerk MaDonna Hornback said.
