Welcome to the Kansas Supreme Court blog. On these pages we will catalogue news about the Kansas Supreme Court, from opinions issued to information on the appointment and retention of Justices. We’ll also occasionally cover some other legal news from the State of Kansas, especially news of any Kansas-related cases in the United States Supreme Court. We take as our model the unsurpassed SCOTUSBlog, though we remain an amateur effort so it can take us some time to get posts out. We’re still finding our voice so to speak, so let us know what you like and what you don’t.
This project started with some guest articles submitted to The Kansas Progress, and some may be cross posted there in future. For the avoidance of doubt there is no editorial link between that site and this.
We are under no illusions that opinion and news can be separated. As we develop a formal style for the site we will use that to keep the news components just that. However, we won’t be shy about bringing personal opinions into it – but we will make it clear when we are doing so.
Comments are on. We welcome comments (especially those which politely point out errors or misunderstandings on the items we report on). We have a few rules however:
- No comments from Mr Anonymous please. By all means post anonymously, but use a handle and stick to it. It makes following comments threads so much easier.
- Language. Let’s keep it clean please.
- Political trollery – refer to political figures you love and loathe by their titles, not witty nicknames.
In due course we will add to or adjust those rules.
This blog is not affiliated in any way with the Kansas Supreme Court. Neither is it associated with any law firm. All statements on the site are worth exactly what you paid for them, and most assuredly should not be taken as legal advice. If you think that a decision of the Kansas Supreme Court as covered here is relevant to your situation, your best course of action would be to discuss the matter with your attorney.
