Details of Kansas judge nominating process may become public

KSAL StaffDecember 4, 2016

The Kansas Supreme Court is considering a rule that would require records related to the selection of nominees for the high court and other judgeships to be made public.

The Topeka Capital-Journal  reports the rule change would require those records to be retained for at least three years after the nominating commission has made its decision. The minutes of the commission would be retained indefinitely.

The commissions are made up mostly of attorneys who interview and nominate candidates for the governor’s consideration.

The state Supreme Court will accept public comments on the proposed change before deciding whether or not to implement it.
