-A A +A

  The Court of Appeals has upheld a circuit judge's Feb. 11 ruling to not seal evidence seized during a search of Hodgenville City Hall that led to indictments of the city's now former mayor and city clerk.

In its order, the Court of Appeals denied an appeal by former Hodgenville Mayor Terry Cruse of Judge Charles Simms ruling to seal personal communications between Cruse and former City Clerk MaDonna Hornback.

The Herald News has contacted Ron Mather, Cruse’s and Hornback’s attorney for comment.
