Louisville Metro Councilwoman Judy Green is appealing a recent ruling against her from the Metro Ethics Commission.

Last month, the commission ruled that Green knowingly violated the city’s ethics ordinance when she ran a city-funded summer jobs program and hired members of her family. The commission recommended that Green be removed from office, and the council has begun impeachment proceedings.

Green’s appeal states that the commission did not have the proper evidence and made procedural and legal errors in its trial. She’s asking Jefferson District Court to overturn the commission’s ruling.
