Kentucky's Finance and Administration Cabinet denied Western Kentucky Orthopaedic and Neurological Associates' first protest concerning Western Kentucky University's proposed sports medicine complex, the Bowling Green Daily News reports.

Here's what you need to know.

 

1. The state wrote a lawyer representing WKONA saying "the state has no protest jurisdiction over a non-binding letter of intent," because the University put the project to bid, "the controversy is now moot."

 

2. WKONA filed two protests because of a clause in the agreement between WKU and The Medical Center which states the Medical Center would serve as the University's main provider for both student athletes and university professionals.

 

3. WKONA was offered the project before the Medical Center, but WKONA passed on the partnership.

 

4. After the project was put to a request for proposal, WKONA filed a second complaint. The RFP process was halted as the university waits for a ruling on the second complaint.
