April 10th. So far in April, the Kansas Supreme Court has issued three decisions. One of these will be covered here shortly. The other two are an unpublished decision and an Attorney Discipline case. The unpublished decision was:
Docket Number / Case Name / Judge / Disposition / County
100,930 — In the Matter of the Marriage of Gerow — Rosen, J. — Affirmed — Johnson.
Unpublished opinions are supposed to be those where the case turns on the straightforward application of existing law. Though widespread, the practice is not without controversy – it has been criticized elsewhere for allowing courts to hide ’stinkers’ as well as being unnecessary in the age of the internet where the size of printed materials is no longer a constraint. These cases are not available online. If anyone is aware of any controversy surrounding them, please contact this blog and we will investigate.
The disciplinary case was In Re Lober (No. 101,212). In the interests of balancing our workload against reader interest we do not write up Attorney Discipline cases, except in unusually newsworthy circumstances.
