Appellate cases put political spotlight on Kansas judges

KSAL StaffDecember 6, 2015

Two cases headed to Kansas appellate courts next week are expected to put the judges in a political spotlight that could have an impact on their careers.

All 14 judges of the Kansas Court of Appeals on Wednesday will hear the state’s appeal of a lower court ruling striking down a new abortion law. The next day the state Supreme Court will consider a case regarding the court’s own power to supervise lower courts.

The Lawrence Journal-World (http://bit.ly/1Iy0CGy) reports a majority of the jurists will be up for retention votes next year.

Some experts are predicting those elections will draw a flood of money from outside interest groups seeking to change the makeup of those courts.

Last year Gov. Sam Brownback campaigned against the retention of two Supreme Court justices.
