Special Olympics Kentucky files suit against city government

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A lawsuit filed by Special Olympics Kentucky against Louisville Metro Government is holding up a new city ordinance.

The non-profit filed the suit over a new law that limits the number of clothing collection bins in the city.

The CEO of Special Olympics Kentucky said the removal of bins would cost the organization thousands of dollars a year.

The law is intended to go after less-reputable groups who do not maintain their bins. The ordinance was supposed to go into effect Friday, but has been held until further order from the court.
