Louisville students have lawsuit against escort dismissed

After allegations in a tell-all book from Katina Powell directed towards misconduct within the Louisville Cardinals basketball program and recruiting strategies, a group of Louisville students decided to file a lawsuit.

Kyle Hornback and three others filed a lawsuit saying the allegations devalued their education, but that lawsuit has since been dismissed, per NBC Sports.

“Jefferson County Circuit Court Judge Mitch Perry denied their argument in Friday’s decision but allowed others who joined the suit after being named in the book to file amended complaints that they were falsely accused and defamed,” the report states.

Louisville self-imposed a postseason ban and has agreed to reduce scholarships as a result of the alleged sex parties involving Powell, escorts and Louisville basketball players and recruits.

The investigation is currently ongoing, so this won’t be the last we hear of Katina Powell or the Louisville scandal.
