LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- U of L's former president wants the court to throw out a lawsuit that says he mishandled millions of dollars. 

The university filed the lawsuit against James Ramsey and several others in April

The lawsuit says they knowingly caused the school to spend endowment funds at an unsustainable rate. It also alleges the defendants diverted some of the funds toward ventures that had little chance of repayment.

On Wednesday, Ramsey filed a motion in court seeking the dismissal of those claims. 

He also called the allegations "stale."
