A federal judge has refused to amend his finding that the ex-wife of a University of Kansas official convicted in a ticket scalping scandal cannot keep assets fraudulently transferred to her in the couple's divorce settlement.

U.S. District Judge J. Thomas Marten on Tuesday again ruled for the government in its lawsuit against Ben Kirtland and his ex-wife, Mary Jean Kirtland. Ben Kirtland is the former Kansas associate athletic director in charge of development.

The government is now trying to collect more than $55,000 from Mary Kirtland. Marten also refused to allow her to appeal the judgment without posting any bond.

Ben Kirtland was one of seven Kansas athletics officials convicted for the unlawful sale of Jayhawk football and basketball season tickets.
