Campus Reform has a good summary on the issue:

Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin is requesting a Franklin Circuit Court judge to declare null and void two appointments that former Governor Steve Beshear made to the University of Louisville’s board of trustees and have them replaced with minorities.

The University of Louisville has faced controversy in recent months over the number of black members appointed to the board of trustees. Louisville’s Justice Resource Center filed a suit in October asking Beshear to appoint more blacks in order to comply with a state law requiring university boards reflect the state’s racial makeup.
