Typically, when the Kansas Supreme Court adjourns, you can find them in Topeka near the state capitol. For nearly a dozen years now, the seven justice court has traveled to as many as four communities throughout the Sunflower State. It’s part of an on-going campaign allowing residents and other interested parties to see the court in action, up close and personal in new venues, at more friendly times.
Next Monday, October 3, the KSC will convene for the first time in its 161-year history in Parsons, Kansas. The court will hear two cases at Parsons High School starting at 6:30 pm. Doors open at 5:30, and guests should allow adequate time for security checks required to enter.
Later this year, Chief Justice of the Kansas Supreme Court Marla Luckert will mark 20 years on the court. Earlier this week, Chief Justice Luckert spoke with KRPS’s Fred Fletcher-Fierro about the court’s trip to Parsons, the hearings that will take place, and the special bailiff selected for the session.
Also on Monday, Chief Justice Eric Rosen will speak at Russ Hall at Pittsburg State University at 2 pm.
Both events are free and open to the public.
